This is a relic from the time when the Mac GUI was also started via  
exec/R and the Frameworks subdirectory relative to the binary is  
where dependent frameworks went. It is now obsolete, and can be  
removed. I'm cleaning up the framework install code and tonight's  
nightly build should be ok.

Thanks for spotting this. My package builds used R 2.2 so they didn't  
catch this and make install didn't either. I'll now switch both  
machines to 2.3 so hopefully we'll catch things like that now.
