[R-SIG-Mac] Installing hexbin package (bioconductor)

Yup. I've built 1.1-4 (2004-10-27) from source without difficulty, 
though it doesn't pass CHECK apparently due to a (non-hexbin) related 
bug in the examples. However, the Release version seems to be 1.0 (and 
the download link broken at the moment). I'd recommend getting the 
Developer version of that package as the older hexbin packages were 
seriously broken in several ways---I think the difference between the 
two versions is the upgrade from S3/base to S4/grid that Martin 
Maechler & co. have been doing.
