r-mathjaxr

Hi,

unfortunately I had to revert commits
00056eafaefed0af8535f219760fbbe01dd6f240 (updating r-metafor).

mathjaxr contains vast amounts of minified JavaScript that cannot be
built from source.  The Guix R team has been working on packaging this
properly for a very long time, but it’s still work in progress.  We
cannot include packages that merely wrap megabytes of minified
JavaScript — we need to actually build this from source.

There are a couple more R package updates that I’ve had to hold back
because of issues like that.  The good news is that we can soon build a
slightly degraded version of mathjaxr completely from source.
