[R] R problems

I have an ibook G3/800 running 10.2.4, with Mac's X11.  
Up until a few days ago, R was working fine but recently it stopped working.  

The error I get is:

dyld: /usr/local/lib/R/bin/R.bin version mismatch for library:
/usr/lib/libncurses.5.dylib (compatibility version of user: 6.0.0
greater than library's version: 5.0.0)
Trace/BPT trap

which seems to imply that it wants a higher version of this library,
although I think it's been using version 5 all along.

I've been having a lot of unrelated problems with my computer, so a lot
of things have changed and it's hard to say what might have happened.  

Thus far, I have moved all my old X11R6 and X11 directories elsewhere, 
including the Library/Receipts for them, and reinstalled Mac's X11 and
SDK, but that didn't work.

Thanks for any help you can give.
