The first thing to ascertain is that R will actually build on such a machine -- there have been a lot of reports of failure on AIX, and no recent reports of success.

If it does, R itself is single-threaded (but can make use of multi-threaded BLAS) but packages such as Rmpi, snow, RScaLAPACK provide parallel facilities (and are in the FAQ).
