Re: [Rd] libgfortran misplaced in Mac OS X R install (PR#14226)

This is not an R bug so please don't abuse R-bugs. It is likely a bug in the way OpenMx binaries are distributed by someone (you didn't even say where you got them from) - OpenMx is not even on CRAN so take that to whoever gave you the binaries. On CRAN we use the correct paths.

Cheers,
Simon

Those are very old posts and those were temporary issues in the CRAN build system that have been promptly resolved.
