Status: Open
Priority: 2
Submitted By: Brian O'Meara (bcomeara)

Summary: Pre-compiled fails on Mac 10.4, source okay 
Component: None
Resolution: None
Severity: normal
Version: None
Operating System: MacOS X

Initial Comment:
Installing the binary from R-forge fails on Mac OS 10.4. This is because the binary is built on 10.5 machines, evidently, and not cross-compiled (right term?) for 10.4 machines. See <http://lists.apple.com/archives/darwin-dev/2007/Nov/msg00107.html>. Building from source works on 10.4.

Here's the screen dump (the "_strtod$UNIX200" makes me think it's a 10.5 compilation thing, given the apple discussion above):
