Actions containing R2 terms in d = 4, N = 1 supergravity are constructed in the on-shell and the new minimal formulation of the theory. The basic feature in both cases is an analogy between supersymmetric Yang-Mills theory and supergravity. This analogy is also used to construct supersymmetric Lorentz Chern-Simons terms, which allows a derivation in d = 4 of an effective action resulting from string compactification.
