I think the Mac page on CRAN points to something obsolete. From the R GUI, CarbonEL is visible. You can also find the source on SourceForge using Google.

However, it didn't work for me: I still get the "interactivity reduced" message, and when I try to plot something, just an error "CGGSStackRestore: gstack underflow."

This is in R in a terminal, with sessionInfo reporting:

R version 2.5.0 (2007-04-23)
i386-apple-darwin8.9.1

with CarbonEL "0.1-3".
