I assume you know that the above general approach won't work very well, so I won't go there... (you don't need Makefile to just add targets).

But your immediate problem is that you want to use R CMD SHLIB $(SRC) and not $(OBJS), otherwise you'll be missing all C*FLAGS (which includes -I that is needed for the headers) since the compilation will be done by your Makefile and not R.
