I don't think this is a bug in *R*, especially as you appear to be using
the unreleased gcc 3.4!
Hint: there needs to be a dynamic library for libg2c, not a static one. If
there is not, that's a g77 on MacOS X problem, which at one time (gcc 3.1)
we had to overcome by using vecLib.
See the R-admin manual which says
./configure --with-blas='-framework vecLib' --with-lapack --with-aqua
The first two options are strongly recommended.
Did you actually follow that advice? You appear to be trying to use
atlas, and there is advice about needing a PIC version for that to work.
