[R-SIG-Mac] update on failing Mac packages in 2.4.1

This is about recent packages failing to load on Mac in R 2.4.1 with  
"unable to load shared library" errors:

The good news is that I found and fixed the problem, the bad news is  
that the build machine is slow and needs to re-build both R and the  
packages which will take some time. Expect most fixed packages to be  
online sometime tomorrow from the R.research.att.com site and  
correspondingly later on the mirrors. (R 2.5.0 is not affected and I  
encourage you to test the RC so bugs can be fixed before the release!!)

For those that missed the hot fix: install gcc4.0.3 from the full R  
2.4.1 installation image if you want the problem to go away  
immediately without re-installing packages. (Open the R 2.4.1 full  
image from CRAN, double-click on "Packages" and then "gcc4.0.3")


PS: I'm cross-posting this to R-devel, because people don't read the  
FAQ and don't look where they should - sorry about that.
