I believe parentheses highlighting is an Emacs feature (i.e., not added by
ESS). Under Windows NT 4.0 with Emacs 20.7, I added the following line in
my .emacs file:

	(show-paren-mode 1)                   ; parentheses highlighting

So, you can surely do the same under Linux. I also use ESS under Solaris
with XEmacs 21.x (I don't remember the exact version number), and the
parentheses highlighting can be switched on/off with the menu.

Hope this helps.
