I don't think I know enough to volunteer (but I am open to suggestion off list), but I had no difficulty installing R from source on a 64 bit Ubuntu machine (7.10, with, I believe, 1 GB of RAM) following the instructions in R-admin. I just kept installing necessary libraries until ./configure completed without errors. Then make, make check, and make install ran without a hitch.
