[R-SIG-Mac] R/qtl installation on Leopard 10.5.7

I would like to continue the thread initiated by Matthew Kinkade,  
concerning a problem with the CRAN binary of my "qtl" package.

If one uses install.package("qtl"), with apparently any mirror, the  
Mac binary install is for the previous version of the package (1.11-12).

And it seems that the binary at either of the following


were mistakenly built with 2.10.0 rather than 2.9.1, and so loading  
the library gives the error that Matthew Kinkade reported (with a  
dyn.load error and a reference to R version 2.10).

I install the above directly with, for example

   install.packages("qtl", contriburl="http://cran.us.r-project.org/bin/macosx/universal/contrib/2.9 

Who should I talk to about getting the package on CRAN re-built?  Does  
anyone know why install.packages("qtl") grabs the previous version of  
the package and not the most current one?
