Dear Marco

Check out


and see if the 

R 2.8.0 Patched (2008-11-21) 	tiger

works for you (nnnnn = 47002 at
this writing - changes every now and then).

I'm no longer running Tiger so haven't
tried this directly, but the Leopard
version is working well.

You might also want to follow the
r-sig-mac list for mac-specific
