For the record: ^^^-- this CPPFLAGS setting is needed *only* for the
compilation of GNU readline, not for R.

As of your broken setup before - I do not recommend installing gcc
from the HPC page, pick the gfortran compiler *only*. Even it has its
issues, but at least it should not affect other (non-fortran) software.
BTW: as of broken system debugging: try setting
DYLD_PRINT_LIBRARIES=1 before you start programs to see if they pick
up libraries from wrong places. Also make sure DYLD_LIBRARY_PATH is
not set, it causes a lot of headaches as it works in slightly
unexpected (albeit well documented) ways.
