Does your build include the patch for the Alternate Entry Point bug  
(PR13082) which was committed to the FSF sources on 28 April (after  
the gcc-4.0.0 release)?  I have manually applied this patch to Apple  
code and it seems to work.

This is a very important patch.  Without it, although R will compile,  
a lot of Fortran code including Octave and possibly some R packages  
will not.
