Sorry for not seeing the error and instead mentioning the warning that  
occurs in the same place.

You are correct that it was a problem with dlcompat, but it is a bug in  
configure that causes it to not be found.  I have dlcompat installed  
from fink, so the files are in /sw/lib.  If I use LDFLAGS='-lcc_dynamic  
-L/sw/lib' the build works fine.

The bug in configure is that the test below doesn't pick up the LDFLAGS  
(line 2059).

if test -f "/sw/etc/fink.conf"; then
   : ${CPPFLAGS="-I/sw/include -I/usr/local/include"}
   : ${LDFLAGS="-L/sw/lib -L/usr/local/lib"}
   : ${CPPFLAGS="-I/usr/local/include"}
   : ${LDFLAGS="-L/usr/local/lib"}

If it is changed to the following it works properly.

if test -f "/sw/etc/fink.conf"; then
   CPPFLAGS="${CPPFLAGS} -I/sw/include -I/usr/local/include"
   LDFLAGS="${LDFLAGS} -L/sw/lib -L/usr/local/lib"
   CPPFLAGS="${CPPFLAGS} -I/usr/local/include"
   LDFLAGS="${LDFLAGS} -L/usr/local/lib"

To recap, the change described above in configure or something  
equivalent (if dlcompat is installed from fink) and the one line change  
in devQuartz.c are required to build R-1.7.1 with X11.

Thanks for the help.
