Not directly. Both R-Forge.r-project.org and rforge.net create Mac  
binaries for hosted projects and we do build Mac binaries for CRAN  
packages, but not from arbitrary sources.

I'm more concerned about abuse than Uwe, we don't have a spare  
dedicated machine for this and I don't want to deal with securing a  
machine to build packages in a sandbox. However, if there was a high- 
enough demand (nothing indicated that so far), we may think about it ...
