Here is the Rcmd from the ./bin subdirectory of the build tree /usrX/JunqueYard/R-2.11.1:

# ${R_HOME}/bin/Rcmd

## Shell script wrapper for all R CMD commands.
## For internal use only.

export R_CMD

export R_VERSION

export R_OSTYPE

## Add 'share/perl' to the perl library path.
if test -n "${PERL5LIB}"; then
  PERL5LIB="${R_SHARE_DIR}/perl:${PERL5LIB}"   export PERL5LIB

## Append 'share/texmf' to TeX's input search path.
if test -z "$TEXINPUTS}"; then

. "${R_HOME}/etc${R_ARCH}/Renviron"
export `sed 's/^ *#.*//; s/^\(.*\)=.*/\1/' "${R_HOME}/etc${R_ARCH}/Renviron"`

case "${1}" in
    cmd="${PERL}" ;;
    cmd="${AWK}" ;;
## this was a separate command prior to 2.10.0
    extra="-t txt"
    if test -x "${R_HOME}/bin/${1}"; then       cmd="${R_HOME}/bin/${1}"

exec "${cmd}" ${extra} "${@}"
