On what platform?  AFAIK we have only ever had reports on Linux.

It is.  Earlier versions of the  manual did contain info on using the 
PG(I) Linux compilers but as we had no reports for a long time, the 
probably-stale info was removed.  It looks like the info was added in 
late 2005, so you could try grabbing R sources from, say, 2007.
