I was struggling with gfortran on the IntelMac for a while, too. The  
only (and I tried many, including backporting stuff, trust me)  
configuration using gcc that (sort of) works is FSF build from the  
4.0.x branch.

Jan, can we compare some benchmarks? I suppose the Intel compiler  
should be much faster ... (and no, I still don't have a good  
benchmark example - we can use yours).

I'm working on R 2.2.1 release builds for ppc64 and i386 right now  
(batteries included ;)), so stay tuned. [Yes, ppc release will be out  
very soon, too - just the GUI localizations are a tad behind schedule  
- my apologies - you can get the framework from the nightlies page  
for now].
