Thanks, fixed for the next build.

It is (see "2.5 Sub-architectures" in R-admin).

I don't have ARD, but since R.mpkg was created using PM and there are  
no binaries involved, I'd guess this is an ARD bug. (Installation  
using both command line and Installer.app works fine). Unless someone  
donates an ARD license (it's rather costly) I can't do much - but if  
you find the cause feel free to share it with us.


(PS: please don't open two bug-reports on the same issue[s])
