[Rd] Minor feature request: Let 'R CMD co*nfig' tell me where the INCLDIR is

On Debian / Ubuntu / ... we have [1]

	edd_at_ron:~> R CMD config --cppflags
	-I/usr/share/R/include
	edd_at_ron:~>   

but I seem to have no way to learn 'just' the /usr/share/R/include part from R CMD config. It would be nice if something like

        R CMD config R_INCL_DIR

could be added as we do have 'LIBnn'. Obviously, this is nothing we need now before 2.8.0. But if it could get added to R-devel, I'd appreciate it.

[ The context is that 'R CMD INSTALL' does fewer things than a few of us
desired (as per a thread a few months ago) but seemingly nobody with the magic powers to change this feels the same way. ]

[1] Old and boring story of show 'arch-independent' files like headers ended
up in /usr/share omitted here.
