[R-SIG-Mac] R nightly builds failing

Although I fixed the problem on the main build machine, the ppc64 part  
is built on another machine (because Rosetta doesn't support ppc64 so  
it cannot be built on an Intel machine) and that machine was booted  
into Tiger instead of Leopard.

I have fixed that as well, and I'll re-run the nightly build, so it  
should be available soon.

BTW: R 2.6.1 patched supports 64-bit, with the only caveat that Quartz  
will be disabled.
