You can follow <http://superuser.com/questions/939070/a-self-contained-r-in-os-x>
(on another Mac) and then set your R pkg lib to a local, writeable
dir. Upgrading R will be a pain and if you don't have compiler tools
installed, usage of source or some github-released pkgs will be
difficult (install on another mac and then copy over to your work
restricted one).
