I am in the process of testing the R.framework I built using 
darwinports.  For some reason I can't seem to install packages into the 
framework using the GUI (compiled from source available yesterday).  
Everything works fine from the R.app command line though.  Anyone have 
an idea what might be going wrong?  I swear this worked yesterday.  


Output from GUI installer:

Error in unpackPkg(foundpkgs[okp, 2], pkgnames[okp], lib,
