The new version of R-devel on http://gifi.stat.ucla.edu/pub has
binaries for about 480 packages. It includes native versions
of RGtk and some of its friends (RGtkConsole, RGtkViewers,
RGtkScrollPane), which allow you to write portable GUI R
applications (with the Aqua look on OS X). The caveat is that
both RGtk and the GTK+OSX frameworks are still incomplete, so
some widgets are inevitably missing.

Observe that this version has no support for X11, uses Aqua
Tcl/Tk, and is intended to be used from either Terminal.app
or Emacs.app, and not from R.app.
