Yes and no... I think if you have to bundle gfortran.so and gcc_s.so,
you should put them in
Why is /usr/local/* touched at all?
I am actually at this moment sitting in front of a mac (on a public
university shared computer room) which has gfortran 4.2.0 20070525
(prerelease) in /usr/local/bin and gcc_s.* and libgfortran* in
/usr/local/lib and /Library/.../R.../lib are different. (which IMHO is
the right way to do it).
