 They're not distributing R itself:

 "You must have R on your computer to use these programs. R is freeware and complete instructions for obtaining and installing it are contained in ZumaStat."

 So, not a GPL violation in my opinion. Disclaimer: I am not a lawyer, although I read some of my ex-girlfriend's contract law books...
