Dear all,

I am currently configuring a Mac Pro running SL.


suggests there are issues with Fink.

I am familiar with building R packages but I have never built R
from source (this might change, however). Question: any strong
opinions re Fink vs MacPorts? Or other solutions? (I have been using
Fink on my laptop for some time without problems but then I never built R
from source.)

Thank you in advance for any suggestions.
