I just added R 2.1.1 to DarwinPorts.  Presently this is only the  
command line version of R but it does support Aqua tcl/tk (a pleasant  
surprise, I tested it with Rcmdr and rgl) and X11.  DarwinPorts  
supports installing frameworks now and I'm planning on making a port  
for R.framework when 2.2 comes out in October.

If you would like to try it out you will first need to install  
DarwinPorts.  Instructions are available here


but it really just boils down to (1) running the installer on this DMG


(the rest of the commands should be run in the terminal)

(2) adding DarwinPorts to your path:
   csh, tcsh: setenv PATH /opt/local/bin:${PATH}
   bash: export PATH=/opt/local/bin:${PATH}

(3) updating to the latest version of port (the program that installs  
the DarwinPorts):
   sudo port selfupdate

(4) getting the latest version of the ports:
   sudo port sync

(5) and installing R
   sudo port install R

Installing R will take a long time because it has lots of  
dependencies (fortran compiler, latex, tcl/tk, etc.).
