Thank you. I understand from your reply that there are a few MacOSX versions
maintained (or similar) and that the one maintained by Stefano Iacus is the
one giving the problem.
To Stefano Iacus, if you not already know, I suspect that it has to do with
the order the packages are installed. Under "Packages bundles"
(http://cran.r-project.org/doc/manuals/R-exts.html#Package%20bundles) it
says
"The Contains field [in DESCRIPTION] lists the packages, which should be
contained in separate subdirectories with the names given. During building
and installation, packages will be installed in the order specified. Be sure
to order this list so that dependencies are appropriately met."
With the introduction of lazy loading this is important. Before, it did not
seem to be a requirement in practice. Is this order strictly followed by the
MacOSX installation scripts?
Just a though.
Henrik
