Hello all,

I get the following error when trying to compile some Fortran code to  
a shared object using R CMD SHLIB:

R CMD SHLIB test3.f
gfortran-4.0 -arch ppc   -fPIC  -g -O2 -c test3.f -o test3.o
gcc-4.0 -arch ppc -dynamiclib -Wl,-macosx_version_min -Wl,10.3 -

It looks like it's having some trouble with libtool, but I don't know  
what it means. I have installed
- the Apple developer tools
- the gcc included with the R installer
- g77 from hpc.sourceforge.net

Am I perhaps missing something, or is something improperly configured?
