this build from a very recent svn checkout of devel is incomplete.  it fails
while trying to build base with the same error as occurs here

bash-3.2$ bin/R
dyld: Symbol not found: _rl_basic_word_break_characters
  Referenced from: /Users/stvjc/ExternalSoft/R-devel/lib/x86_64/libR.dylib
  Expected in: dynamic lookup

Trace/BPT trap

i built readline 6.0 from source with the -arch x86_64 switch on gcc
and configure
worked ok.  i think the symbol exists

nm /usr/local/lib/libreadline.6.0.dylib | grep break
000000000002b500 D _rl_basic_word_break_characters
000000000002b4f0 D _rl_completer_word_break_characters
000000000002b4e8 D _rl_completion_word_break_hook

help!  the past few days have been nothing but glitches and bugs...
