[R] How to create an R RPM from source

I use some computers that run older versions of Redhat Linux such as EL3. RPMs for the current version of R are no longer provided via CRAN for these older operating system versions. How can I compile my own RPM for the current version of R, which I could then use to install R quickly and easily on multiple machines? Perhaps the answer to this would be a useful addition to the manual R Installation and Administration. Obviously, I am not a system administrator and I don't deal with compiling from source code or using SRPMs very much. If anyone can explain the process step-by-step or refer me to instructions for the non-expert I would appreciate it.

Thank you,
