[R-SIG-Mac] Cocoa gui with embedded R framework

The way I am imagining this working out is that the linked path and 
R_HOME will both be set dynamically relative to the location of R.app 
when it is launched.  The @executable_path token seems to do the trick 
for the linked path.  R.app always finds libR.dylib in the embedded 
framework even if the R_HOME variable is not set.  Tomorrow I will try 
to get Rcontroller to set R_HOME relative to the location of R.app at 
launch.  Then (again the way I am imagining things) everything should 
work unless you move R.app while it is running - which hopefully the OS 
won't let you do.
