I have dlcompat, readline, g77, ncurses and bzip2 ship with 10.2, are 
they explicitly needed to be rebuilt, I was keeping things simple and 
not trying to build the tk interface or atlas, that is for once I got 
the basics going (I thought....). I've also tried building R with no 
additional args to configure, except ENV variables needed to point it 
at g77 in /opt/local.

thanks for the help, I'l keep tweaking variables in the system and see 
if I can tie it down to something. I just need a faster machine to do 
all this recompiling on ;)
