[R] Mac OS X binary package naming convention

Did the convention change during the R 2.0.0 Cocoa update?
When I issue the build command:

$ R CMD build --binary mypkg

I expected to get 'mypkg_0.9-0.tgz' but instead got
'mypkg_0.9-0_R_powerpc-apple-darwin6.8.tar.gz'. Or should
I rename it manually?

platform	powerpc-apple-darwin6.8
arch		powerpc
os		darwin6.8
system		powerpc, darwin6.8
major		2
minor		0.0
year		2004
month		10
day		04
language	R

SIGSIG -- signature too long (core dumped)
