yes, there is an official portfile in MacPorts:
that will install 0.6.2 with MacPorts' R, though. actually, i hope it will
still fetch the sources, as we've only just recently moved the project from
sourceforge's svn to KDE's git (but 0.6.2 should still do). up-to-date
portfiles can be found in RKWard's git repo:
(in the kde folder)
you can add that locally, as outlined here:
MacPorts doesn't want official portfiles to use libraries outside the MacPorts
universe, so there's the portfile called "rkward" which is supposed to replace
the 0.6.2 one on MacPorts soon. then there's the portfile "rkward-devel",
providing three additional variants of the port ("rkward-devel", "rkward-
binary" and "rkward-devel-binary"); "*-binary" builds against preinstalled
binaries of R, and "*-devel" fetches the bleeding endge sources from git.

ha, you can try RKWard's dialogs and hit the "code" button to see what R code
is going to be run, to get up to speed again ;-)

ok, then we can probably just ignore it.

the postinstall script in the bundle should take care of this, but i'll try to
get more information on this.

if we could we'd simply build the bundle on 10.9 or 10.10 and check if that
does the trick. there are some differences between 10.7 and 10.9 which could
have an impact here (no XQuartz, different R binary package, latest XCode
version...), but we're currently stuck with 10.7. i'm tempted to install
GNU/linux on the iMac and run OS X in a virtual machine on that hardware, to
be more flexible on that side.
