[R] Building R on Mac OS X-"dumping methods" problem

I don't think I can help debug your problem with specific 
suggestions, but I can say that a after a default configure R 
compiles successfully in 10.2. Albeit, with various additional 
libraries installed from fink (dlcompat  readline  g77  ncurses  pcre 
bzip2 tcltk atlas)

Presumably, then, your problem results from one of the non-default 
args you have supplied to configure, or perhaps the absence of one of 
those other packages, or maybe a difference between the darwinports 
version of one of them and fink's version.

I hope this helps at least a little!
