Had the same problem. The LAPACK library will not compile with the gcc  
on macosx.

Jan de Leeuw helped with this configuration:

--enable-R-shlib --with-x --with-blas='-framework vecLib'   
--with-lapack TCLTK_LIBS='-framework Tcl -framework Tk'  

This uses the vecLib library in macosx instead of LAPACK.

PS. If you don't have tcl/tk aqua frameworks installed, delete these  
sections in the config.

./configure  --enable-R-shlib --with-x --with-blas='-framework vecLib'   

I presume you have an X11 installed.

Check out  
thread.html which is a macos
specific list for R which Jan de Leeuw moderates.
