I am experiencing troubles installing "Hmisc", especially its dependency
"acepack", via

> biocLite("acepack")

in R-devel installed from the "R-devel-mavericks-signed.pkg" downloaded
from https://r.research.att.com/.

The error reads:

BioC_mirror: https://bioconductor.org

  (2015-11-16 r69640).

which indicates that "gfortran-4.8" is missing.
I have however installed the recommended "gfortran-5.2" for El Capitan
from here:


Yesterday, I tried quite some time to install 4.8-versions of gfortran
available from the website above, however they are not compatible with El
Capitan (Error reads: kern.osversion not recognized: »15.0.0) and searched
through several newsgroups reporting on that issue, I was however not able
to fix that.

Did anyone of the community here experienced similar issues and have some
suggestions for me!?

Thank you very much!
