Whoops. Of course. Thanks Vincent!

After getting your Email I looked into this a bit.  In the default
install, site-start.el has this:
   (tool-bar-mode nil)			; hide the ugly toolbar

I changed that "nil" to "t" and sure enough, that gets me the general
Emacs toolbar on launching Emacs.  However, ess-toolbar.el is present,
ess-site.el requires it and there's nothing in .emacs switching that
off.  However, I don't get the toolbar when I open an R file though I do
get the ESS menus.

I'm happy to try anything you or Vincent might suggest.

Thanks all,
