[R] (no subject)

I've been using R for a while under Mac OS X, which thanks to the R on OS X developers, is probably the best platform for learning R. I recently built a Linux box with a Pentium D processor, and am running an AMD64 port of Ubuntu with the SMP kernel.

After setting up the basics on the box, I thought I'd install R as well. I've had a very hard time finding good documentation on some configure flags/options for compiling a 64-bit version of R on Linux. I thought this was very strange, considering Linux is apparently the R developer's platform of choice.

Can anyone point me to some good build instructions for 64-bit R under Linux? Should I compile it against any additional libraries for better performance?

Thanks in advance for any pointers.
