Dear all,

I have a problem installing a package required by Hmisc on MacOS 10.3.5  
with R 2.00.

g77   -fno-common  -g -O2 -c avas.f -o avas.o
g77   -fno-common  -g -O2 -c rlsmo.f -o rlsmo.o
gcc -bundle -flat_namespace -undefined suppress -L/usr/local/lib -o  
acepack.so ace.o avas.o rlsmo.o  -L/usr/local/lib  
-L/usr/local/lib/gcc/powerpc-apple-darwin6.8/3.4.2/../../.. -lfrtbegin  
-lg2c -lSystem -lcc_dynamic -framework R
ld: warning -L: directory name  
(/usr/local/lib/gcc/powerpc-apple-darwin6.8/3.4.2) does not exist
ld: warning -L: directory name  
(/usr/local/lib/gcc/powerpc-apple-darwin6.8/3.4.2/../../..) does not  
ld: can't locate file for: -lfrtbegin
make: *** [acepack.so] Error 1
ERROR: compilation failed for package 'acepack'

I found on the Internet a fix for R 1.8 which suggests to delete the  
-lfrtbegin library from /Applications/StartR.app/RAqua.app/Contents/etc  
but this path does not exists anymore on R 2.00.

How could I solve the problem.

Thank you in advance for the help.
