Caveat: I know next to nothing about Mac...

That said, my guess is that you installed R from binary, rather than building from source. In that case the compilers and flags, etc., are configured to the machine that the binary is built on. You can look in $RHOME/etc/Makeconf to see the settings, and see if changing them helps.
