Requirements: Mac OS X 10.6 or higher for the Snow Leopard build, Mac OS X 10.9 or higher for the Mavericks build. For additional tools necessary for compiling packages, see below. We use Xcode 4.2 but Xcode 3.2 and higher should work as well. Note that you will need Command Line Tools component of Xcode on Mac OS X 10.7 or higher. The Mavericks build uses Xcode 5.
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 for the Snow Leopard build of R also 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.
Starting with R 2.5.0 CRAN binaries use Apple's 10.4u SDK allowing universal builds on both PowerPC and Intel Macs. Building universal R is done by compliling two R binaries and setting r_arch parameter to ppc and i386 respectively, along with the proper compiler flags. Those two builds can then be installed into the same framework location, R install process merges them correspondingly.
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:
More external libraries and older versions can be found in the /libs/ directory.
