As for hexbin: it builds fine with this release of R for Mac OS X and

the other question is about 2.0 binaries for BioC. There was a wrong 
link to 1.9 packages instead of 2.0 packages in the macosx page on BioC 
(it was my fault as usual).

It is now fixed, so the package installer of R.app should now be able 
to get the correct version.
