Actually, you are trying to *install* it
- on a Mac (without telling us)
- from source (why? people usually install binary packages there)
- asking on the wrong list (R-sig-mac is appropriate)
- with an incomplete R installation. Go to the CRAN Mac OS X pages
and read what they say about installing Tcl/Tk and gfortran.
And follow-ups to R-sig-mac please.
