R does not seem to recognize my R_PROFILE:

$ cat $HOME/etc/Rprofile.site
a <- 3

$ cat "$R_PROFILE"
a <- 3

$ R

> a

Error: object "a" not found

> version

platform       sparc-sun-solaris2.10       
arch           sparc                       
os             solaris2.10                 
system         sparc, solaris2.10          
major          2                           
minor          6.2

svn rev        44383                       
language       R                           
version.string R version 2.6.2 (2008-02-08)

R_PROFILE is set to $HOME/etc/Rprofile.site. I would appreciate any suggestions.
