[R] Compiling R with zlib in non-standard location

Hi all,

I am trying to compile R 3.4.0 on a RHEL 6.5 system. R requires a newer
version of zlib than is standard on RHEL 6.5. I do have a newer version
that satisfies R's requirement, but the configure script gives no way of
specifying a non-standard location of zlib.

Is there a way around this? Or should I try to make a feature request?

Thanks in advance,
