Ok, maybe Hilmar, Brian and I should take this off-list then.  My best idea
(being the OS X ignoramus that I am) were to look at two other (and small !!)
package that also link against Rcpp:

 -- Earth Mover Distance
    No log at R-Forge because no recent changes

 -- RInside
    No log at R-Forge because I had a stupid mistake in a change
    on Sunday that I fixed yesterday -- will work now but hasn't been
    rebuilt on R-Forge yet

We simply need a smaller working example, see the exact gcc invocation on OS
X and then compare what the more complicated (as ncl enters etc) phylobase
does.  This ain't brain surgery and we will get this fixed.


Three out of two people have difficulties with fractions.
