Re: [Rd] Build error on Mac OS X

The updating of gettext support is currently in mid-progress (and specifically what is required for MacOS X). It looks as if your system has another version of gettext installed: please configure R not to use such a version for now (see configure --help for how to do so).

Once the update is complete you may be able to use your installed version again (although likely it will not be current enough).
