Uwe, do you think it would be helpful to display this information from
Rgui?  That is, put the whole list of packages into the menu, but mark
some of them as unavailable and display the explanation if those are
selected?  I'd guess lots of Rgui users never look at the binary
directory themselves, they let Rgui do it.
