Greetings on A.N. Kolmogorov's 100th birthday:

I am sure that this is a resolved problem, certainly it has been raised in R help
several times before, but I can't seem to find the right clue.  I've recently
upgraded a G4 to OS 10.2.5 and I thought I would have another go at installing
R from source, after failing to accomplish this in 10.1.

So with 1.7.0 from CRAN configure seems to be fine, but make dies with the following

gcc -dynamiclib -install_name /usr/local/lib/R/bin/libRlapack.dylib -L/sw/lib -L/usr/local/lib -o libRlapack.dylib dlapack0.lo dlapack1.lo dlapack2.lo dlapack3.lo cmplx.lo  -lf77blas -latlas -L/sw/lib -L/usr/local/lib -L/sw/lib/gcc-lib/powerpc-apple-darwin6.5/3.1 -L/sw/lib/gcc-lib/powerpc-apple-darwin6.5/3.1/../../.. -lfrtbegin -lg2c -lSystem
ld: common symbols not allowed with MH_DYLIB output format with the -multi_module option
/sw/lib/libg2c.a(err.o) definition of common _f__cblank (size 4)
/sw/lib/libg2c.a(fmt.o) definition of common _f__cnt (size 40)
[more of this]
/sw/lib/libg2c.a(err.o) definition of common _f__icptr (size 4)
/sw/lib/libg2c.a(err.o) definition of common f(short, void, int, char) (size 4)
/usr/bin/libtool: internal link edit command failed
make[4]: *** [libRlapack.dylib] Error 1
make[3]: *** [R] Error 2
make[2]: *** [R] Error 1
make[1]: *** [R] Error 1
make: *** [R] Error 1

Configure produces:

R is now configured for powerpc-apple-darwin6.5

  Source directory:          .
  Installation directory:    /usr/local

  C compiler:                gcc  -g -O2

  Fortran compiler:          g77  -g -O2

  Interfaces supported:      X11

  Recommended packages:      yes

And the g77, gcc info is:

rudjer: g77 -v
