The installer image (*.pkg) is packaged exactly the same way as the CRAN release of R (including the GUI) and it will update your R version (unless you use pkgutil - see instructions during installation). Alternatively you can use the tar-ball (*.tar.gz) which must be unpacked in the root (e.g. tar fvxz R*.tar.gz -C /), but doesn't contain the GUI (see below for a separate download).
NOTE: The installer includes Tcl/Tk package which will install in /usr/local. It is optional (only needed for the tcltk R package) and can be unchecked at installation time.
Starting with R 3.0.0 the builds are single-arch 64-bit Intel builds for OS X 10.6 and higher.

To install, open the image and drag the R icon to your Applications folder. Alternatively the GUI can be run directly off that image without copying if you just want to test it. Build configurations with "64" suffix are 64-bit builds, all others are 32-bit (except for Debug). If you want to use both, rename one of them or place them in different directories.
To build an universal package that contains a configure script, it is necessary to run R CMD twice. Assuming you have a source package foo_0.1.tar.gz, this is how you install it universally:
NOTE: Bob Rudis is maintaining a new version of a tool which has RSwitch functionality and more - see 3rd party RSwitch replacement (NOT related to R-Foundation or CRAN!).
More external libraries and older versions can be found in the /libs/ directory.
