Re: [Rd] R + OS X + gcc 3.5 = not quite there ..

I tried R-devel (07/31/04) with

setenv CC gcc-3.5
setenv F77 gfortran
setenv CXX g++-3.5

Here gfortran is g-95, version 3.5, from Gaurav's site.

Configure goes fine, build goes fine, except for problems with macro-expansion
in plot.c, similar to the one you mention in starma.c. After clobbering those, the
compile is allright, the base package builds fine, and the binary runs. There
is a problem with loading packages, however (see below).

With R-patched (07/31/04) there are no problems with plot.c, but there is the
problem with starma.c (I guess a cpp-3.5 bug). Even when fixing starma.c the package stats still refuses to build because of

gfortran -fno-common -g -O2 -c ppr.f -o ppr.o /var/tmp//ccSqEJAf.s:8241:FATAL:Symbol __BLOCK_DATA____ already defined.

make[5]: *** [ppr.o] Error 1
make[4]: *** [all] Error 2
make[3]: *** [all] Error 1
make[2]: *** [R] Error 1
make[1]: *** [R] Error 1

make: *** [R] Error 1

and the "bad restore file magic number" errors are there as well.
