Dear r-sig-mac users:

I tried to brew R -- an initially failed.

I tried both

$ brew install R


$ brew install R --use-llvm

however both threw the following errors:

31747 Trace/BPT trap: 5       | R_DEFAULT_PACKAGES=NULL ../../../bin/R
--vanilla --slave > /dev/null
make[3]: *** [all] Error 133
make[2]: *** [R] Error 1
make[1]: *** [R] Error 1
make: *** [R] Error 1

Error: r did not build
Logs: /Users/mcj/Library/Logs/Homebrew/r/
Help: https://github.com/mxcl/homebrew/wiki/troubleshooting

The second link suggests the following work-around, which worked for me:

$ brew install R --env=std

Thought that this might be of interest to some on this list.

best regards
