I am trying to install the rgdal package on my Mac OS X 3.9. I downloaded and installed the GDAL libraries from Fink and then tried to install rgdal and got the following message. I tried to determine if the GDAL libraries were in my path but I'm not sure how to do that. Any ideas? Thanks.

The gdal-config script distributed with GDAL could not be found. If you have not installed the GDAL libraries, you can download the source from http://www.gdal.org/ If you have installed the GDAL libraries, then make sure that gdal-config is in your path. Try typing gdal-config at a shell prompt and see if it runs. If not, use:   --configure-args='--with-gdal-config=/usr/local/bin/gdal-config' echo with appropriate values for your installation.

The downloaded packages are in
