I've tried to build the package without the Makefile. I get an error
referring to 'gfortran-4.2'. I have 'gfortran-4.9' on my machine. Any
suggestions for where to look would be appreciated. Thanks.
clang++ -I/Library/Frameworks/R.framework/Resources/include -DNDEBUG
-UNDEBUG -Wall -pedantic -g -O0 -fPIC -mtune=core2 -g -O2 -c
RcppExports.cpp -o RcppExports.o
gfortran-4.2 -arch x86_64 -g -O0 -fPIC -g -O2 -c mvt.f -o mvt.o
make: gfortran-4.2: No such file or directory
make: *** [mvt.o] Error 1
ERROR: compilation failed for package 'M2'
Error: Command failed (1)
