I have been working on packaging (for internal use only) multiple
versions of R (eg 2.14.1, 2.14.2, 2.15.0) such that I can install these
RPMs and provide the different versions of R (especially 2.14.x and
2.15.x) to the biostatisticians that require them. I have been messing

provide R in the location I would like:


Now I know this can be done but I am just having some difficulty in
getting it to work correctly. I have tried multiple variations in the
spec playing with adding -%{version} to the paths within the spec file,
as well as even using -libdir=/usr/lib64/R-%{version} which  works to a

I have attached the spec file I have been modifying and would appreciate
any insights into getting this packaging correct.

Thank you in advance for any assistance
