[R] Sorting vectors according to a desired correlation coef

Dear all
First time posting in this list. This is my question: I have three vectors (x, y, z) containing random numbers from three different distributions (normal, random, exponential). I want to sort the vectors so the pairwise correlation coefficient between them is 0.5. How can I do this. I can't use mvrnorm because I'm using different distributions. Any help will be greatly appreciated.
