The error message you reported has this in it:

    ** arch - Frameworks
    /Library/Frameworks/R.framework/Resources/etc/Frameworks/Makeconf: No such file 
    or directory
    make: *** No rule to make target 

So I would try nuking /Library/Frameworks/R.framework
But I'm still quite puzzled.  For example, I have such a directory
from a binary install of R, but it does not interfere with my from
source R build.
