I discover the problem with RAqua and package installation from source.

I'll upload a new version of RAqua soon, but if you have already 
downloaded toady's version you just need to edit the first line of the 


emacs /Applications/StartR.app/RAqua.app/Contents/MacOS/R

change the first line from




exit emacs with ctrl-x ctr-s   ctrl-x ctrl-c

you don't need to rerun RAqua.

Form the R console use
