I have been bitten by this myself. For that reason I have stopped using .Renviron.

I believe the behavior is the same under Linux and Windows, so I think you might have a different setup on the two machines.

You can fix it by explicitly setting

   R_LIBS
as an environment variable or by putting the following in your .Rprofile

   .libPaths(SOMEDIR)
But of these are accessed by R CMD ...
