yes, but when I do, I get the following during the install (which fails).

checking version of JAGS library... wrong version
configure: error: rjags requires JAGS version 4.x.y
ERROR: configuration failed for package ‘rjags’
* removing ‘/usr/lib64/R/library/rjags’
* restoring previous ‘/usr/lib64/R/library/rjags’

which makes no sense, because I have JAGS 4.0.01 on the system, and in 
the path
