[R] setting editor environment variable EDITOR either when configuring R for installation or in .Rprofile

I'm running R on Linux and use emacs as my editor. When doing "edit(vignette(foo.vignette))" I would like to invoke emacs rather than the default vi. I am able to manually set this by editing $R_HOME/etc/Renviron but would like to avoid doing this with each install. I assume this can be accomplished with a flag to .configure or in .Rprofile but I can't find the syntax in R-admin. Editor is not listed as an environment variable in appendix B of that manual.

So, help is appreciated as I've probably missed something. Mark
