I have made a regular R install, so that  
is now a Carbon APPL, using Rez in the way described before. We now  
have basically
two R's -- one from Terminal.app and one from R.app. The first one  
works fine, except
for the small glitch of not starting the default device properly. The  
second one does not
work properly with Aqua Tcl/Tk, while the first one does. Both work  
with the quartz device.
Also the first R works fine from the Carbon Emacs using ESS (while the  
standard build
cannot use the quartz device from Emacs).

This means that people who (a)  prefer to run their R from the Terminal  
or from Emacs,
and (b) who prefer Aqua to X11, should use the first R. Since I am one  
of these people,
the next release of R on gifi will have no X11 and no R.app.
