[BioC] R-2.4.0/bioconductor/darwin kernel version problem

My OS is Mac OS X Server 10.4.8

I've got a fully functional R-2.3.1/bioconductor instance and decided  
to try installing R-2.4.0 in a different location.

the R-2.4.0 appears fine but the bioconductor packages dislike the  
kernel version. The error is:
Error: package 'affy' was built for universal-apple-darwin8.8.1
my version is:
#uname -a
Darwin luria.mit.edu 8.8.0 Darwin Kernel Version 8.8.0: Fri Sep  8  
17:18:57 PDT 2006; root:xnu-792.12.6.obj~1/RELEASE_PPC Power  
Macintosh powerpc

In addition to affy, Biobase has also been tried and produced an  
identical error.

this is what the error looks like:

R version 2.4.0 (2006-10-03)

Type 'q()' to quit R.
