Here is an immediate answer.  It's not quite elegant yet.

create a file
scroll.el containing two lines

(setq comint-scroll-to-bottom-on-output t)
(setq comint-scroll-show-maximum-output t)

After starting R, go to the *R* buffer and load scroll.el with

<esc>; load-file

You must be in the *R* buffer when you load the file.  Use the full pathname
if you stored it somewhere else.
