Current R-devel doesn't compile on OS X, because "-framework Carbon" 
was (correcly) removed main_ldflags, but it was not added to flags for 
grDevices, where it is needed now. The following tiny patch remedies 
the issue (it is sufficient to include AppKit as only that subset of 
Carbon is needed):
