I never packaged RInside, and I already asked you where you got it from.
Your unwillingness to actually answer questions I ask limits my willingness
to spend more time helping you.

And yes, looking at exactly what version of libraries your programs link to
generally matters.  As you (re-)learned now.

Try to step back an inch or two and abstract: it is the _process_ that
matters, not the slavish repetition of steps.  

As such, failure is a great learning experience once you overcome the initial
difficulty.  Failure to learn that is a wasted resource.  

Good luck.
