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

Another one that would be nice to have is

edd_at_ron:~/svn/rcpp> grep "\.so" /etc/R/Makeconf DYLIB_EXT = .so
SHLIB_EXT = .so

in order to copy with OS X extensions programmatically in Makefiles. But I guess I could also source Makeconf explicitly. At least the Matrix package does that.

Not really, unless I missed it. Brian more-or-less dismissed it by pointing to DESCRIPTION's 'Type: Fronted' but that still doesn't solve the issue I was suggesting as new R CMD INSTALL functionality. But life is short and many things are worthy to work on so this one may have dropped to the sides for good.
