It's the same as any other unix - you just start it (e.g. /configure  
if it's in the current directory).

It is supported if you have one.

Depends what you mean, the dmg is the *binary* version of R so clearly  
it doesn't contain the configure script. Hence if you want to compile  
your own R form sources, you have to get the sources ;). (But make  
sure you read the R for Mac FAQ before you do that).
