[Rd] BLAS/Lapack on OS X

R-devel has the --with-lapack flag for configure. If you build R with

--with-blas="-framework vecLib" --with-lapack="--framework vecLib"

then the build goes through, using the native optimized BLAS and
Lapack in /System/Library/Frameworks/vecLib.framework. Also, it
works, in the sense that it does eigenvalue problems correctly.

I don't have any timings yet, because I just upgraded to a new Mac,
but I'll post some soon.
