[R-SIG-Mac] Does the universal installer build R as a shared lib?

Hello there-
I am new to R and used the new universal installer to install it (Mac OS 
X 10.4.5); wonderfully easy. Over the weekend I tried to build Rpy and 
got an error  (below); though I haven't found any information on that 
error, I do see a recurring theme that R must be compiled as a shared 
library for Rpy to work correctly. Does the universal installer build R 
as a shared library?

gcc -Wl,-F. -Wl,-F. -bundle -undefined dynamic_lookup 
-L/Library/Frameworks/R.framework/Resources/lib -lR -lRlapack -o 
/usr/bin/ld: can't locate file for: -lRlapack
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
error: command 'gcc' failed with exit status 1
