I just downloaded and installed R 2.3.0 on my Mac G5 running
OS X 10.4.6. I also updated with R.app revision 3114 as
recommended. Now, when I attemp to use package rgl
I get the error

> library(rgl)
Error: package 'rgl' is not installed for 'arch=ppc'

I have tried reinstalling from CRAN using both binary
and source. The source install fails, The binary install

Warning in install.packages(file.choose(), , NULL, type = "mac.binary") :
       argument 'lib' is missing: using /Users/neely/Library/R/library

and does not fix the problem.

The same problem occurs with some packages (e1071, svmpath)
but not others (gdata, gplots, gtools).

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
