Dear R-Devel,

I'm using Ubuntu on an x86_64 machine and would like to have both the 32-bit and 64-bit versions of R built from source. By default, following the usual build procedures yields 64 bit R. Looking at [these](http://cran.r-project.org/doc/manuals/R-admin.html#Sub_002darchitectures), I thought I could build 32-bit R by executing

r_arch=32 ./configure

and building R like usual (make). However, after seeing this error message,

/usr/bin/install: cannot create regular file `../../include/32/Rconfig.h': No such file or directory

I realize I am misunderstanding the instructions. Could someone please clarify how I could go about compiling both 32-bit and 64-bit versions of R on my Linux machine? Thank you!
