Is there any expectation of you upgrading these from OS X 10.5 to 10.6?

Is there a possibility that you bifurcate the builds into 'current' and
'older' systems which, IIRC, is done for Windoze as per

It is a bit of a mismatch that you pull pre-release versions of R itself yet
host them on older OS versions.

Anyway---I will point our OS X user to source installs.

There is no issue AFAICT with Rcpp. I cannot trigger a single warning with
the three g++ versions at my disposal all of which are more recent than what
you deploy.

Thanks for running the builds and the continued help.
