[R-SIG-Mac] rgeos and rgdal binary packages for Mavericks

I have put statically-linked packages up on CRANxtras for the CRAN 
Mavericks distribution.  To use,

setRepositories(ind = c(1,6))  # so you get the dependencies from CRAN
install.packages(c('rgeos', 'rgdal'))

[It is nothing like so easy to do from the R.app menus.]

rgdal is compiled against the latest GDAL 1.11.0 and has a good range of 
GDAL and OGR drivers compiled in.

However, any packages which depend on these will need to compiled from 
source unless/until binaries are built for the main CRAN repository.
