Thanks,

the "universal" MacOS X binaries are now updated/built, which are what the CRAN package pages refer to.

Just for others information: I've been emailing offline with Simon U ("maintainer"), and it turns out that my initial posts to him regarding these issues went into his spam folder. Without wanting to raise expectations of his responsiveness, he basically said if you don't get a reply within a few days, your post most likely ended up in his spam folder. May be good to know.
