In trying to install the randomForest package from source under r-devel (2013-10-20 r64082)
I get
[R.app GUI 1.62 (6580) x86_64-apple-darwin10.8.0]

I have Xcode 5.0 and the CLI installed.

Any advice on what do I need to do to make f951 available?

Also, installing r-devel has the result that after switching back to R-3.0.2 patched, 
it crashes upon starting.  The issue seems to be with the GUI, as there seems to
be no problem from the command line.  I will forward details if that seems useful.
