[Rd] Using custom R_LIBS with R CMD install

Hi all,

Am I using the correct syntax to set a custom R_LIBS when running R CMD INSTALL from the command line?

I get:

R_LIBS=/Users/hadley/R-dev R CMD INSTALL aL3xa-rapport-08e68ca/
# Desktop : R_LIBS=/Users/hadley/R-dev R CMD INSTALL aL3xa-rapport-08e68ca/
# * installing to library ‘/Users/hadley/R’

# ERROR: dependency ‘ascii’ is not available for package ‘rapport’


ls /Users/hadley/R-dev/
# HandyStuff animation biOps mcmcTools mvbutils quantreg testthat
# SparseM ascii ggplot2 mturkr nstest scales whisker

(I'm actually running this from inside R using system2, but I think this is the essence of my misunderstanding)
