Just curious - does that mean that ${R_INCLUDE_DIR}${R_ARCH} should actually be somewhere else than in ${R_INCLUDE_DIR}, because strictly speaking it is not architecture independent? It seems to me that would just make things even more messy, and I'm wondering what Debian does in that case ... In fact I can't even find examples for either on my Debian machines (except for Sun's Java which seems to use /usr/ lib as R used to) ...
