[R] Weighting cluster variables in R?

Are there functions to weight variables for clustering in R? I can't seem to find anything, so apologies if there is.  

I am particularly interested in weighting variables (starting with kmeans) to optimise inter/intra-cluster distances. It seems to me that if certain variables do show a strong cluster structure, this would be a wise thing to do.  

Any advice welcome.
