Hi Rob,

what you can always do is installing the gcc (newest release is 4.8.1) and compile R from source with this compiler (I would suggest to enable only the 
languages C, C++, Fortran, OBJC and OBJ-C++). I am using a Mac Pro with newest Mountain Lion and this works smoothly, as long as you disable aqua support, 
i.e. you will use R only on the shell. 
If you want to try this I can send you a whole description of steps to do.
