[R] Incorrect libxml2.2.dylib version on Tiger install

Hi all,

I have just installed OSX Server 10.4 and R comes up with the 
incompatible libxml library message reported by Dan Kelley a few 
messages ago.  Xcode 2 does not ship with Tiger Server.  I installed 
the X-Windows code.  I can report that the version of libxml2.2 that is 
installed in this case is the version 8.0.0 dylib.

[6]sboker at munimula:/usr/lib % ls -l libxml2.2*
-rwxr-xr-x   1 root  wheel  1061704 Apr 15 23:44 libxml2.2.6.16.dylib*
-rwxr-xr-x   1 root  wheel  1061804 May  6 14:15 libxml2.2.dylib*

I'm working on getting a copy of the Xcode 2 CD.  I was surprised it 
wasn't in the 10.4 server CD set.  I have a production problem today, 
though, if anyone can help me with a copy of this library.
