[R-SIG-Mac] Rsafd Mac Package

Why don't you ask the author for a source package?

By (AFAICS) not providing source code for his package he is making 
life difficult for users.  Only on Windows is it reasonably safe to 
distribute compiled code in DLLs -- everywhere else dynamic linking 
makes compiled code dependent on the OS version.

However, other changes mean that the version for Windows is not going 
to work in R >= 2.10.0 (although someone sufficiently persistent could 
most likely unpick the binary and recreate a version that did work).

And please don't send HTML: as you can see your message got somewhat 
mangled as a result.  See the posting guide ....
