I just tried it, and it installed flawless.

BUT: I have installed R, fortran, gdal, ... using homebrew. In my
experience, this simplifies the process of compiling, as always the same
compiler is used and everything is installed from source.

I made it a habit of installing *all* packages from source and did not
have any problems so far.

Hope this helps,
