[R-SIG-Mac] Binary packages on CRAN

How is it decided what packages are offered as binaries for Mac and 
what other packages are only offered as source? Is it by "popular 
demand"? If so, I suggest adding Hmisc to the binaries for Mac OS X. I 
tend to go see those first when trying to find which packages might be 
of use to me. Hence I did not discover this package until someone 
recommended it to me. It seems quite useful and maybe others would use 
it to.

Anyway, I installed it on an iMac running Panther and got a warning at 
the end of the installation, something about chmod not being allowed. 
It seems to work though.

I just installed it on my PB running Jaguar and got this:

Warning message:
Installation of package Hmisc had non-zero exit status in: 
install.packages(ui.pkgs, CRAN = getOption(where), contriburl = 

Should I be worried?
