For the yas mode to be active, it seems like at least one snippet must
be defined for ESS mode.

Thus, if you have e.g.

  (setq yas/root-directory "~/.emacs.d/mysnippets")

in your ~/.emacs, then create a directory
~/.emacs.d/mysnippets/ess-mode/ and place a snippet inside, e.g. a
file called "for.yasnippet" with content

  # -*- mode: snippet -*-
  # name: for ( ... in ...) { ... }
  # key: for
  # contributor: jrnold <jeffrey.arnold at gmail.com>
  # --
  for (${1:i} in ${2:vector}) {

Does it help? I mean, do you now, after restarting emacs, have the yas
menu in ESS mode now? If so, I hope r-autoyas will work too. Does it?
