WINE (Wine Is Not an Emulator) is a native interface to the Windows
API's, so you can compile and then run Windows programs on
the native system (so it's not an emulator such as Virtual PC, which  
and Intel CPU on another CPU). Wine runs on Linux.

There is now a pre-Alpha of WINE for Panther on Sourceforge. I'll track
it. Eventually it means that twisted persons, such as me,  can compile
and run the Windows version of R natively on OS X.
