IIRC I got this error right after installing R-3.0.0 on my mac.

In my case it was due to customizing inferior-R-args to invoke the 64 bit 
version of R using the '--arch=' arg. When the structure of R directories
changed at R-3.0.0, this broke things.

If C-h v inferior-R-args <return> reports a value and it is something
other than "", then you should customize this or remove the line from
your .emacs that sets it.
