By the way, this is the reason why I removed Mac OS X from my Macbook and replaced it with Ubuntu: to have a reasonably updated version of gcc instead of the very old one bundled with Lion.

I don't have much experience with OS X Lion, but couldn't you simply have installed a newer version of GCC? I've not used a Mac as my main work machine for a while, but it used to be possible on Snow Leopard using MacPorts with some tweaking. I certainly had GCC 4.5.x running with OpenMP 3.0 support on my Snow Leopard based machine (like you, I needed it for modelling).
