[R] snow on OS X

Hi, I installed snow via R.app (from R 2.6.0) on OS X (10.4.11,  
Tiger), though I did not install Rmpi or Rsprng.

My first question - has anybody installed Rsprng on OS X? The link  
from the CRAN package page seems to indicate that the sprng code was  
not installed rather than Rsprng not building.

Second, I tried to create a cluster using the SOCKET option by doing

cl <- makeSOCKcluster(rep('localhost',2))

However, after issuing this, R just seems to hang. I have set up  
passwordless ssh, so that doing ssh localhost logs me into my machine  
without any password, so I'm not sure what the problem is

Any pointers would be appreciated
