Install fortran-based R package on Mac OS X

I'm attempting to install version 1.10 of the cts package from CRAN on OS X, and I'm running into some linker problems. I need to install from source, because I'm making a few changes to the source (actually Zhu Wang, the cts author, made the changes & sent me the new tarball - but the same issue happens with the stock sources of cts on CRAN).

It seems to compile all the sources fine, but then fails with the following errors during linking:

> install.packages('~/Downloads/cts_1.0-11.tar.gz', .libPaths()[1], repos=NULL, type='source')

Are there any compile/link flags I should pass to install.packages(), maybe? What options are the CRAN binary build machines using?
