Hi All,

We're having some problems with the Mac OSX port of R V1.2.3 binary that came from CRAN in that a (Perl) scripted installation of the xgobi library halts unexpectedly.  The commandline that fails is:

R --silent INSTALL --library=/usr/local/genex/lib/R/library \

The comment from the affected user is:

  It still hangs just after "Installing source package 
  'xgobi'", then " R" appears on the next line (including the space).

I saw the thread on " Difficulty with R CMD INSTALL " and was wondering if others have had a similar problem on OSX.  

Using R 1.2.3 on x86 linux (RH & Debian), I've never seen this problem, so I'm wondering if it's a porting artefact.
