[R-SIG-Mac] GCC on Lion and above

Dear all (simon...)

I’ve installed what I think is the recommended gcc+fortran installer pkg for Lion:


but get no fortran in my /usr/local/bin and compiling an R package that needs it (http://openmx.psyc.virginia.edu) fails... no fortran.

I _think_ i have followed the instructions on http://r.research.att.com/tools/#gcc42
        (it’s confusing that up-to-date OS instructions are buried down in the (long) list of possible packages to install: I would be happy to help reorg this...)

gcc is fine
which gcc

-bash: gfortran: command not found

config info follows... sorry for the hassle

*** Config info ***

Xcode 4.4 with command line tools installed

echo $PATH


FYI, here’s the make trail from attempting to make OpenMx
