a version of R-1.2.2 for MacOS X (more precisely, for Darwin 1.3 with
X11R6) is at


the file should be 5161540 bytes

-- su root
-- unpack in /

and everything gets put in /usr/local/bin and /usr/local/lib

this has the standard packages, including tcltk, and it has
X11R6 support

it uses tcl/tk 8.0 from the GRASS distribution

i also have a version with gnome support, but it still needs
some work -- and it's probably nonsense anyway

of course you need to install an X server and an X browser

i have not tried this in the Public Beta, so some of you may have
to wait a couple of days

there were no big problems in porting, but of course you need
Darwin versions of X11R6, of tcl/tk, and a shim for dlopen (that
maps the usual calls to Mach-O dyld calls). because of dyld
you have to replace "-shared" when linking foo.so to
"-bundle -undefined suppress".
