-R is a recent addition to OpenSP (and lq-nsgmls).  The -R option is
available from the opensp_1_5_branch in OpenSP's CVS repository, but it
isn't yet in a release version of OpenSP.

The -R option restricts local file reading to prevent untrusted users from
reading arbitrary files on your server.  If you don't have any untrusted
users of your local installation, you could remove the -R option.  If you
have untrusted users, you should compile OpenSP from the opensp_1_5_branch
in CVS or use lq-nsgmls or later.
