Yes, that works, Actually, I placed
(setq ess-r-versions '("R-1" "R-2" "R32" "R64"))
in my .emacs, before loading ess-site.el.
That turns out to be all that I need to do. If I make that change,
I can leave my ess-5.4 installation files unchanged, I find. So
what does the command
(defvar ess-r-versions '("R-1" "R-2" "R-devel" "R-patched"))
do, in essd-r.el? Does it do what is necessary when one has, e.g.,
R-devel on one's path?
My emacs path has the path to R32 and R64, of course.
I take it, that I was misled by the lines in ess-site.el,
as a model for what I was after:
;;(setq-default inferior-S+6-program-name "Splus8") ; unix systems
;;(setq-default inferior-R-program-name "R") ; unix systems
