Leopard build of R requires Mac OS X 10.5 or higher. Use Tiger build (available from CRAN) for older systems.”

As Uwe says, if SPSS insists that you use outdated versions of R, SPSS should take on the maintenance rather than expect an academic/volunteer group to do it for them.
However, Yosemite has the alphabetical-sort problem of making version 10.10 come after 10.9 and not between 10.1 and 10.2 and I wonder if that is what is biting the 2.14.2 installer. There is no way that we'll be rebuilding old packages, but in other contexts, people have gotten around the problem by temporarily setting the version of Yosemite to 10.9.
