It turns out that /usr/lib64/ is what is needed. I was able to install rJava after adding /usr/lib64 to the JAVA_LIBS and JAVA_LD_LIBRARY_PATH

    env JAVA_LIBS='-L/path/to/x86-64/jdk-1.6.0_06/jre/lib/amd64/server -L/path/to/x86-64/jdk-1.6.0_06/jre/lib/amd64 -L/path/to/x86-64/jdk-1.6.0_06/jre/../lib/amd64 -L -L/usr/java/packages/lib/amd64 -L/usr/lib64 -L/lib -L/usr/lib -ljvm' JAVA_LD_LIBRARY_PATH='/path/to/x86-64/jdk-1.6.0_06/jre/lib/amd64/server:/path/to/x86-64/jdk-1.6.0_06/jre/lib/amd64:/path/to/x86-64/jdk-1.6.0_06/jre/../lib/amd64:/usr/java/packages/lib/amd64:/usr/lib64:/lib:/usr/lib' R-2.7.0 CMD javareconf
