The R configure script checks to make sure that the C compiler works  
by compiling the file conftest.c and its not working on your  
computer.   If you want you can give it a try.  Use this compile command

gcc-3.3  -I/opt/local/include -L/opt/local/lib -lcc_dynamic conftest.c

and this C code:

/* confdefs.h.  */

#define PACKAGE_NAME "R"
#define PACKAGE_VERSION "2.1.1"
#define PACKAGE_STRING "R 2.1.1"
#define PACKAGE_BUGREPORT "r-bugs at R-project.org"
#define PACKAGE "R"
#define VERSION "2.1.1"
#define R_PLATFORM "powerpc-apple-darwin8.2.0"
#define R_CPU "powerpc"
#define R_VENDOR "apple"
#define R_OS "darwin8.2.0"
#define Unix 1
/* end confdefs.h.  */
int main ()

   return 0;

It says it can't find /usr/lib/libcc_dynamic.a
