[R] problem installing RdbiPgSQL for 2.4

I just upgraded R to version 2.4.0 and now I can't install packages RdbiPgSQL. I used the same procedure I did for previous versions of R ! Actually, last time I installed RdbiPgSQL day before upgrading but now I got:

downloaded 27Kb

I could not find your PostgreSQL client libraries! Use --with-pgsql-libraries=PATH; if running R's INSTALL, use --configure-args='--with-pgsql-libraries=PATH'; or set PG_LIB_DIR in your environment to the library path, and rerun the configure/install.

ERROR: configuration failed for package 'RdbiPgSQL' ** Removing '/usr/local/lib/R/library/RdbiPgSQL'

The downloaded packages are in

         /tmp/RtmpA3Mdb4/downloaded_packages Warning message:
installation of package 'RdbiPgSQL' had non-zero exit status in: install.packages("RdbiPgSQL", repos = rS, configure.args = c(PGSQL = "--with-pgsql-libraries=/usr/local/pgsql/lib --with-pgsql-includes=/usr/local/pgsql/include"))

Looks like install.packages doesn't pass configure.args to the package.
