[R-SIG-Mac] R.app Packages file to load: Cannot find library objects

I’m having a problem with R 3.2 on the Mac under R.app, and the Internets have failed to provide an answer, so I was wondering if there might be someone here that can help me.

Whenever I try to load a package I get the following error:

> library(dplyr)
Error in dyn.load(file, DLLpath = DLLpath, ...) : 
  unable to load shared object '/Library/Frameworks/R.framework/PackageLib/dplyr/libs/dplyr.so':
  dlopen(/Library/Frameworks/R.framework/PackageLib/dplyr/libs/dplyr.so, 6): Library not loaded: /Library/Frameworks/R.framework/Versions/3.1/Resources/lib/libR.dylib
  Referenced from: /Library/Frameworks/R.framework/PackageLib/dplyr/libs/dplyr.so
  Reason: image not found
Error: package or namespace load failed for ‘dplyr’

(1)	The specific library referenced in the dlopen() function may differ — here it is libR.dylib, but for markovchain it’s libgfortran.

(2)	I’m running (just installed) R 3.2.1 World Famous Astronaut, but this happened with 3.2.0 as well;
		Mac OS 10.10.3
		32 GB Core

(3)	This only happens using R.app.  Everything works fine when I fire up R in R-Studio or at the command line.

(4)	I have noted that it seems to be trying to access the 3.1 Resources.  There are some 3.1 things out in /Library/Frameworks/R.framework, but all the major directories, particularly those that are links, appear to be pointing to 3.2.  I don’t know how to tell R.app that we’ve moved on in life and need to be looking in the new neighborhood.
