On Mac OS X 10.6 it makes 64-bit the default on the command line and  
provides R32 and R64 start scripts to force one or the other. It also  
removes ppc* support (you cannot compile ppc packages on Snow Leopard,  
you must use Leopard if you want to target ppc/ppc64).

On Mac OS X 10.5 (Leopard) it makes 32-bit the default (as usual) but  
provides R64 on the command line.

Both GUIs (R64 and R) and provided in either case. The package does  
not contain Tcl/Tk nor gfortran, use
if you want to use Tcl/Tk or compile packages from sources (if you  
installed full CRAN R previously then you already have all that).

It is considered a RC for CRAN.
