Reinstalling R 3.2.2 fixed the issue for me. I guess this reinstated the symlink in /usr/local/bin.

Did you check the Emacs variable exec-path? I think this one is the key. My distribution has a patch to correctly import the shell environment at Emacs startup. For example, I have:
exec-path is a variable defined in `C source code'.
Its value is
("/opt/local/bin/" "/opt/local/sbin/" "~/bin/" "/usr/local/bin/" "/usr/bin/" "/bin/" "/usr/sbin/" "/sbin/" "/opt/X11/bin/" "/Library/TeX/texbin/" "/Applications/Emacs.app/Contents/MacOS/bin-x86_64-10_9/" "/Applications/Emacs.app/Contents/MacOS/libexec-x86_64-10_9/" "/Applications/Emacs.app/Contents/MacOS/libexec/")
Hope this helps!
