[R-SIG-Mac] Sweave.sty

The problem is that the place where R puts the Sweave file is not part
of the search path for your tex installation.  You can fix this by
adding the path as you would add any other path, or you can use the
following in your .Rprofile which will put an absolute path inside
your generated tex document (just look at the header of the tex
document).  The absolute path means that running your tex document
through tex in order to generate say a pdf will only work on your
computer, but that might not be an issue for you.
