[R-SIG-Mac] Updating to Mavericks

From comments made on the thread regarding the segfault in the R.app GUI following the error from TRUE <- FALSE, I'm inferring that at least three people ( Prof. Ripley, S. Urbanek, and T. Bates) have installed R 3.0.2 on Mavericks.  I have R version 3.0.2 (2013-09-25) -- "Frisbee Sailing" with R.app GUI 1.60 (6475) and XCode Version 3.2.6 in OSX 10.7.5 and have installed the Command Line Tools, so at the moment I'm  generally succeeding when compiling from source. (I see I am rather behind the current GUI version although that was not my intention when I updated to 3.0.2.)  Are there any specific steps one needs to take (or avoid taking) in order to preserve access to (or gain updated access to) tools for compiling packages from source?

(I've seen people posting problems on SO where the error after updating to Mavericks was a missing copy of llvm-gcc-4.2.)
