[R-SIG-Mac] Error in gfortran packaged with R binaries

I am building R from source using Apple's C/C++ compilers from Xcode  
2.4.1 and the gfortran included in recent binary distributions.  The  
host is a Core Duo MacBook Pro.

During the build I get a lot of these:
/usr/local/gcc4.0/bin/gfortran -D__NO_MATH_INLINES -fPIC  -arch i386   
-c ../../../../src/extra/blas/cmplxblas.f -o cmplxblas.o
/var/tmp//ccbSWVl5.s:23289:indirect jmp without `*'
/var/tmp//ccbSWVl5.s:23304:indirect jmp without `*'

which seems to indicate errors in the assembler output by the fortran  

This does not happen if I use a recent gfortran from  
hpc.sourceforge.net.  It does not happen with ppc targets using the R  
distributed compiler.  It DOES happen with an i386 target build on a  
ppc host.
