Check out this page here:

Primarily that blue box about 1/2-way down the page, that says:

Leopard builds can be installed as follows - paste in Terminal (for R  
curl -s http://r.research.att.com/R-2.8-branch-leopard- 
universal.tar.gz | sudo tar fvxz - -C /

That should do the trick and save you the hassle of compiling  
yourself. ;-)
