This seems a question for the ESS-help list.

But you should be using Emacs customization these days: I have in my .emacs

  '(c-basic-offset 4)
  '(c-default-style "bsd")

in custom-set-variables, and that is what the 'R Internals' manual says for Emacs >= 21. (You can set that from the 'Customize Emacs' menu item, Programming, Languages, C group.)

Those are recommendations for Emacs < 21.

It has been (long ago):

   Alternatively, (for @acronym{GNU} Emacs 21 or later),    use customization to set the @code{c-default-style} to @code{"bsd"}    and @code{c-basic-offset} to @code{4}.)

Follow the above.
