[R-SIG-Mac] Call to configure for R-devel on Mac OS X (Darwin)

I'm just getting started building R-devel on an Apple compute server. 
I'm familiar with Unix/Linux and especially with Debian so fink is 
familiar.  However, I don't know anything about Frameworks, etc.

I think I want to use the vecLib.framework because these machines are 
dual-processor and it looks as if the R-2.0.0 binary uses threaded BLAS 
here.  Should I be using a --with-blas=<whatever> switch to configure or 
something like that?

At present I am using

setenv CPPFLAGS "-I/sw/include"
setenv LDFLAGS "-L/sw/lib"
$R_SRC/configure \
   --with-pcre \
   --with-bzlib \
   --with-zlib \
   --with-recommended \
   --enable-R-shlib \

and I am encountering problems compiling the lapack module.  I imagine 
this is due to accessing the fink version of libg77.a.  Could someone 
volunteer to do a bit of off-line hand holding for me regarding this
