[Rcpp-devel] Specifying compiler to use within Rcpp

I've got Mac OS X 10.7, which still uses gcc4.2.  I can 
install a separate copy of a newer gcc (e.g. 4.7), but is 
there a way to make Rcpp (and inline) use it while compiling?

I suppose I could use a symbolic link to make gcc refer to 
gcc4.7 everywhere on my system, but that seems like an 
inflexible solution.

Any help appreciated.  Cheers!

When people thought the earth was spherical, they were 
wrong. But if you think that thinking the earth is spherical 
is just as wrong as thinking the earth is flat, then your 
view is wronger than both of them put together."
