			Macintosh-specific changes to R

standard HTML browser to visualize the HTML help and manuals.

"etc" directory. Directory "etc" is assumed to contain the history 
file, the image session and the environments variables

* a command line has been added. It is possible to specify options as 
in the Unix/Win implementations. If you don't want to specify 
options, simply type return after starting R aplication.

* InfoZip code has been included in this version. Help files are now 
stored in zipped archive to save disk space.

* packages have been recompiled and few other bugs fixed
