As I mentioned to you a couple of days ago (when the list was still hanging),
OS X builds are administered by Simon Urbanek who is famously busy.

If you have alternate build tools you could just set up a repo yourself. The
drat package on CRAN makes that easy -- see my site or the CRAN pages for it.
