[R-SIG-Mac] cleanest build I can think of

I've recently had the 'opportunity' (if you can call a dead hard drive 
that) to rebuild my iBook from scratch and I thought I'd share my 
'building R with minimum changes' :-)

Note: I use bash not tcsh, I don't remember if this syntax works

FPICFLAGS=-fno-common LDFLAGS=-lcc_dynamic ./configure --enable-R-shlib 
--with-aqua --without-x --with-blas='-framework vecLib' --with-lapack

This gets rid of the devQuartz.c building problems caused by 
Debugging.h and gets configure to run. Everything else is according to 
Stefano's website. Obviously you'd need to make modifications for 
Tcl/Tk and recommended packages and such, but this gets me up and 
running without having to modify files (which is good for those of us 
syncing from R-sync :-))
