The rgdal package is not a dependency of sp, only suggested. In addition, you are trying to install source packages, but should (probably) be installing binaries, with type="mac.binary.leopard" the most likely. If you need the OSX rgdal binary, make sure that CRAN extras is on your repository path - see ?setRepositories, for example by
setRepositories(ind=1:2). If you really want to install source packages under OSX, be sure to read up on this on

http://cran.r-project.org/bin/macosx/

looking for the FAQ, and links to tools. If you can manage with binary packages, stay with them.
