This is harmless, merely a warning and stems from the fact that Apple  
changed the behavior of the assembler on Intel Macs (for better - it  
is now more compatible with other assemblers - but consequently  
incompatible with its previous behavior).

Although the most recent Xcode fixed the fatal bugs that forced us to  
use our own compiler, we can't switch to Apple's gcc until R 2.5.0  
due to binary incompatibility between the two (see R for Mac FAQ). If  
you build you own R, feel free to use Xcode's gcc.
