Thanks for pointing this out. JGR is a completely different beast and unfortunately it has to hard-code things, because it is not started via R CMD, so it doesn't know the right paths. For non-framework unix, however, we can do better, because JRI now uses autoconf, so it can pull the paths from R at configure time. I'll fix JRI correspondingly.

Another hack I suspect, but I'll have to ask Markus about this one.
