[R-SIG-Mac] vegan failed to load under Mac OS X Mavericks

This is not a vegan issue: see this mailing list about the problems other people had with tcltk (tcltk is the key issue).

Next version of vegan can be loaded without tcltk and there should be patched versions of R-for-Mac that do not suffer with this problem. The next version of vegan can be obtained from http://r-forge.r-project.og/, but it no longer provides Mac binaries. For patched versions of R, see other messages in this mailing list.

Cheers, Jari Oksanen

When trying to load Vegan in R 3.1.2 under under Mac OS X Mavericks I get the following error. Any idea why?

"starting httpd help server ... done
Error : .onLoad failed in loadNamespace() for 'tcltk', details:
  call: dyn.load(file, DLLpath = DLLpath, ...)
