I will no longer maintain the Darwin/X11 version, since

(a) You can get a better version from fink -- in particular
if you set up fink properly you will not have the missing dylib

(b) I have agreed with Jeff Whitaker (fink R maintainer)
that he will put r-base, r-base-atlas, r-base-gnome, and 
in fink.

(c) I have agreed with Stefano that we will get working on
an Aqua GUI for R and he will get working on a Quartz device.
This will mean Quartz/Aqua wrappers around the
Darwin/X11 version of R, best of both worlds.

(d) I have agreed with Jeff that we will start putting R packages
into the fink system. He has already installed rpy, which
went without a glitch, and which now allows one to use
all of R from python.
