I will presume you are using a Unix-alike, but you failed to say (please do study the posting guide and supply the basic information requested).

You have not said how you are doing this: R CMD SHLIB still works as you want. What changed was R CMD INSTALL on Unix-alikes in 2.3.0, to allow for multiple sub-architectures.
