[R] problem with rdocdir option when installing R2.3.1

In the "R documentation and Administration" manual it is said that "The configure or make variables |rdocdir| and |rsharedir| can be used to install the system-independent doc and share directories to somewhere other than |libdir|".

Then I've installed R v2.3.1 on a solaris platform (SunOS 5.9) with the following commands :
> ./configure --prefix=/somewhere/stats rdocdir=/elsewhere/html
> make
> make install

It works well since documentation files are located in in /elsewhere/html but when I use the html browser to compulse the documentation, the links doesn't work.

In fact, all HREF balise are like "<a href="../../library/package/...">" 
but the library directory is not installed to "../../library" it is 
installed to "/somewhere/stats/R-2.3.1/library".

Is there a parameter that I've missed ?

Thank you for your help
