I've got a problem installing R 3.1.3 from source on Mac OSX 10.9.5 with gcc-4.9-bin.tar.gz

./configure ends with:
 R is now configured for x86_64-apple-darwin13.4.0
  Source directory:          .
  Installation directory:    /Library/Frameworks
  C compiler:                gcc  -g -O2
  Fortran 77 compiler:       gfortran  -g -O2
  C++ compiler:              g++  -g -O2
  C++ 11 compiler:           g++  -std=c++11 -g -O2
  Fortran 90/95 compiler:    gfortran -g -O2
  Obj-C compiler:	    gcc -g -O2 -fobjc-exceptions
  Interfaces supported:      X11, aqua, tcltk
  External libraries:        readline
  Additional capabilities:   NLS, ICU
  Options enabled:           framework, shared BLAS, R profiling
  Capabilities skipped:      PNG, JPEG, TIFF, cairo
  Options not enabled:       memory profiling

... although also there is a warning during configure
configure: WARNING: X11/Intrinsic.h: accepted by the compiler, rejected by the preprocessor!
configure: WARNING: X11/Intrinsic.h: proceeding with the compiler's result

'make' generates a lot of time-zone warnings, and ends in Done.

'make check' ends with time-zone related errors.

'make install' returns

I've tried ./configure --without-internal-tzcode ...and it doesn't make much difference.

I've checked my /usr/share/zoneinfo/ all looks normal I guess.

I'm thinking the problem might be related to gfortran, Xcode (updated recently), or permissions. The time-zone issue might be a result rather than a cause. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
