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

it seems to me that Simon discourage to use fortran from (old) R  
binary and, indeed 2.4.1 boundle does not contain fortran compiler as  
far as I remember (I cannot check right now).
Also, gfortran from hpc.sourge* is the way to go.

Simon is actually in NZ so maybe we need some time to get some answer.
My current setup is Apple Gcc + gfrotran from hpc.*
