I am forwarding this to r-sig-mac, because I get this question a lot

-  Is the latest version the one from 
http://gifi.stat.ucla.edu/builds/R ?
-- what is your Mac OS X version ?
-- what does "otool -L /usr/local/lib/R/bin/R.bin" say
     for me it says:
         /usr/lib/libSystem.B.dylib (compatibility version 1.0.0, current 
version 55.0.0)
         /sw/lib/libz.1.dylib (compatibility version 1.1.3, current 
version 1.1.3)
         /sw/lib/libreadline.4.dylib (compatibility version 4.2.0, 
current version 4.2.0)
         /sw/lib/libdl.dylib (compatibility version 0.0.0, current 
version 0.0.0)
         /sw/lib/libncurses.dylib.5 (compatibility version 5.0.0, current 
version 5.2.0)
-- if you do not have those dylibs, download them from 
    or (better) install them using fink.sourceforge.net
-- make sure /sw/lib is first in your DYLD_LIBRARY_PATH, i.e put in your 

if ( $?DYLD_LIBRARY_PATH ) then
   setenv DYLD_LIBRARY_PATH /sw/lib
