I booted into Lion OS X 10.7.6 and everything built and installed without a 
Back in Mountain Lion I searched for llvm-gcc4 and it looks like it was not 
installed by default from the Xcode package.
Further digging uncovered this note in the "What's New in Xcode" document.
"NOTE: LLVM_GCC is not included in Xcode 5"

So that's where things stand right now. It seems to me there are a number of 
options for 10.8 Mountain Lion and forward:
(0) Install GCC4 
(1) Try to build using llvm-clang
(2) Boot into 10.7 Lion to use APL

Personally I don't mind trying to do what it takes to try (1). I have the time 
( I'm in my mid 70s) and some experience.
But I'd need some guidance and help with the whole automake and friends to be 
of any use.

Seeking your advice ….
