Normally none for pairs like gcc/g77, including in that case.  As it
*is* checked, did you just go ahead and see?

This is often needed when mixing compilers from different vendors,

We would suggest that you use R-patched.tar.gz, which has hints about
how other people have done this, and some patches to make configuration
etc run more smoothly.  By the time 1.2.3 is released, compilation on
Mac OS X will be supported.
