Matrix fails check, that's why it's not available:
It seems like a silly reason to fail, but still, it explains ..
> lme4 is tied to a specific version of Matrix, and the Mac binary package repository for 2.13.2 has versions of Matrix (0.999375-50) and lme4 (0.999375-40) which do not work together for me. But the current Matrix is 1.0-1 and current lme4 is 0.999375-42. So AFAIK the only option is to install these packages from their sources.
> Simon: the binary repository on the CRAN master for 2.14.0 has not be updated for 4 weeks and is rather incomplete, and clearly the 2.13.2 area needs some updates. With 2.14.0 less than a week away, this is getting urgent.
