R spgrass6 Library Installation in openSUSE: workaround

I've encountered a problem with connecting R and GRASS in openSUSE to multiply their power. "spgrass6" library was unwilling to install properly. Here is a workaround for this issue.

"spgrass6" needs libxml2-dev (can be found here) package for installation (actually this  package is required by "XML" library that needed for "spgrass6") so install it ;-)

If you will try to install "spgrass6" normally (as root), you may receive the message (first two lines of installation logs) that this library will be installed in '/root/R/x86_64-unknown-linux-gnu-library/2.13’ because 'lib' is not defined which means that this library will be available only for root. So you need to perform installation as user and everything will be fine.
