Well, no one else is reporting it, and that includes the daily checks run by Simon on MacOS X so it is not that no one has tested R-devel for the last few weeks (and Simon was involved with the design of this change).

It looks as if 'make install-R-framework' puts a link in bin/exec, which is not supposed to be used for other than front-ends. I think you need to take this up with the MacOS X maintainers, since the problem is in their code, not in general R, and no one else can address it. If the link is really necessary, it is INSTALL.in that needs a patch.
