[R] MacOS X binary for lme4 not available on CRAN

First, this is not the list to discuss MacOS X binaries: that is 

Second, only one person really knows about the situation with package 
binaries, the person who produces them (equally true for Windows and 
for Mac OS X).  And that person does not read R-help, having asked for 
such issues to be discussed on R-sig-mac.

I very much doubt that this will be solved this week: the failure of 
lme4 in its checks on Mac OS X has been going on for years.

Installation will work but package checking will fail, at least on an 
i386 Mac.
