This only applies to OSX for 3.0.0, 2.15.* appear still to be supported.
The issue seems to be the absence of rgeos, which is suggested by
maptools. There are also issues for OSX wrt. rgdal. This suggests that OSX
users should stay on 2.15.* until things calm down. I released new sp,
rgeos, and rgdal to suit an OSX transition from gcc to clang a few days
ago, so probably OSX will catch up in a number of days.
