[R-SIG-Mac] Sweave Error

I have an iMac 2.8 GHz intel Core 2 Duo, 2GB 800 MHz SDRAM, OSX  
10.5.8, TeXShop 2.36, and R 2.11.1.  I have all the Sweave files in  
the TeXShop ~/Engines folder.

It has been six or seven months since I last tried to compile a Rnw  
file in TeXShop and now I get the following error:

/Users/keithjones/Library/TeXShop/Engines/Sweave.engine does not have  
the executable bit set.

It worked fine the last time I used it.  Has something changed in the  
OS?  How do I set the executable bit?
