Dear all,

I have a problem with the newest R version. I'm trying to install a
specific package dplR who need the gpm package and I have this error on my
macbook (OS Sierra):

> install.packages("dplR")
also installing the dependency ‘gmp’

Packages which are only available in source form, and may
  need compilation of C/C++/Fortran: ‘gmp’ ‘dplR’
Do you want to attempt to install these from sources?
