I don't think there's a way to do this right now, but I will
investigate.  Luc Bourhis had some ideas about fixing compilation on
Lion which I need to follow up on anyway.  I'm a little worried about
what to do for all of the other packages we compile (Python, etc.); is
there a possibility of incompatible libraries if they don't all use
the same compiler?

Aside from the technical issues - is there a reason why you can't just
use the binary installer?  I've been using this on Lion and have yet
to see any issues.
