This query belongs to the R-SIG-Mac list.
I don't think you should worry too much.
R is reporting the system it was built under.
The version you are using is for Leopard and higher.
Same as what I'm using on 10.6.5.

As far as I can see you are using the correct version for 10.6.5

See ?version for the "Do not use R.version$os to test the platform the code
is running on...."
