1. R-devel on OS X  aborts when the code below  is run after spitting 
out the

Loading required package: MASS
Parameter 5 to routine DSTEIN was incorrect
Mac OS BLAS parameter error in DSTEIN, parameter #0, (unavailable), is 0

2. I compiled R-patched using the included BLAS and Lapack, although
Brian says this is impossible on OS X, because they are in FORTRAN (??).
This version of R runs the code below just fine.

3. So there seems to be a difference between the implementation of
DSTEIN in vecLib.framework and in other BLAS versions. The error
message comes from vecLib.

4. To build libRlapack.dylib on OS X add the flags "-flat_namespace
-undefined suppress" to the link.

-------------- next part --------------

5. I will post this version of R-1.9.1 (using the X11 version of Tcl/Tk  
and the R version of BLAS and Lapack) on gifi.
