R2.3.0 has a problem checking one of my self-authored Oce package (http://myweb.dal.ca/kelley/pub/sof/oce/index.php). The package builds fine on another machine running a R2.2.1. Both machines are macintoshes running the latest version of OSX.

I am reporting this here not to get help - I realize the package is too big to provide a test case - but rather as an alert.

Running "R CMD check oce" produces an error, and when I checked the relevant failure file (ctd.Rout.fail), I see the following contents. This suggests that maybe the system is trying to run an i386 binary, even though the machine has a powerpc CPU. (Now you can see why I'm reporting this -- it seems to be a problem with the OSX universal binary.)

/Library/Frameworks/R.framework/Resources/bin/R: line 192:
/Library/Frameworks/R.framework/Resources/bin/exec/i386/R: cannot execute binary
/Library/Frameworks/R.framework/Resources/bin/R: line 192:
/Library/Frameworks/R.framework/Resources/bin/exec/i386/R: Unknown error: 0
