The binary on CRAN works fine with Apple's X11. Assuming you have that
one installed (it comes with OS X, but is by default not selected in
the installer) [or you're using R remotely], you can either run R right
from the xterm or, if running from the Terminal, make sure you have the
DISPLAY variable set and X11 server is running.
You can run the R Cocoa GUI instead (/Applications/R) and get the
Mac-native Quartz device ...
If you still have problems, please tell us more precisely about your
setup (which X11, how do you start R etc.).
