On what platform? AFAIK we have only ever had reports on Linux.

It is. Earlier versions of the manual did contain info on using the
PG(I) Linux compilers but as we had no reports for a long time, the
probably-stale info was removed. It looks like the info was added in
late 2005, so you could try grabbing R sources from, say, 2007.
