Hi Folks,

On my macbook with lion and a source code build, I always set --compiler=gcc for cctbx and this works fine. Just tried a source code build of phenix which failed because it picked up clang, so how do I override this in the install script?

I didn't see the option from the install script:

Graemes-MacBook-Pro:phenix-installer-dev-1078 graeme$ ./install --help
