[R-SIG-Mac] Patch: Growl Notifications for R

Haven't had much time for messing about with R (or StatPaper or 
anything else) recently, but I added this one a while back and its 
proven useful. Basically, it adds Growl Notifications 
(http://www.growl.info) to R such that you receive a notification via 
Growl when 1) R is in the background and 2) the computation has run 
longer than 'x' seconds (where 'x' is in the defaults dictionary). 
There's no hook to the preferences (since I use it personally and just 
set the defaults from Terminal) for anything, but I suppose I could be 
goaded into such a thing if people are interested. It seems like it 
should go in the 'Misc' Pane to me.

To build it once you've done the patch you need to weak link the 
GrowlAppBridge framework (-weak_framework GrowlAppBridge), so it will 
still work for people who haven't installed Growl. Diffing the project 
files doesn't work well so I didn't include that part.
