[BioC] Biobase in R 2.12 referencing libR.dylib from R 2.11, bug?

Hi guys,
we have installed R 2.12 and BioConductor on a new Mac. The installation 
worked fine without any errors; however, the following error is produced 
when trying to load Biobase:

 > library(Biobase)
Error in dyn.load(file, DLLpath = DLLpath, ...) :
   unable to load shared object 
6): Library not loaded: 
   Referenced from: 
   Reason: image not found
Error: package/namespace load failed for 'Biobase'

The odd thing is the "2.11" in the path to libR.dylib; this does not 
exist and should likely be 2.12. Subsequently, all the BioConductor 
packages fail to load since they depend on Biobase.

Please help.

We are using the following configuration:
 > sessionInfo()
R version 2.12.0 Patched (2010-10-19 r53362)
Platform: x86_64-apple-darwin9.8.0/x86_64 (64-bit)

[1] en_US.UTF-8/en_US.UTF-8/C/C/en_US.UTF-8/en_US.UTF-8

attached base packages:
[1] stats     graphics  grDevices utils     datasets  methods   base

loaded via a namespace (and not attached):
[1] tools_2.12.0

Thanks so much,
Josef and Emad
