1. How did you install it? I think there are probably some flags you
can set to have it compile both 64 and 32 bit versions (but I'm kind
of surprised that this didn't happen automatically ...

2. Why not just use the 64bit version of the R GUI as well? You can
download it here:


Download the version that that ends in *Leapard64.dmg that's also the
right version of R that you're using, eg:


Doing #2 is kind of side stepping the issue, but I think you'd
probably like to run R/64bit even when running from the GUI as well.
