[R] compiling rgdal package on windows / macos

As I am not a windows user, I cannot try this: is it possible to install rgdal on windows without having to compile it from source ?

Compilation on MacOS is within my abilities, however each time i try and install the rgdal package it dies complaining that it cannot find gdal-config --- which was recently installed with GRASS. I have updated my PATH environment variable, logged out, but R still cannot find the gdal-config program.

any tips on getting the rgdal package up and running on MacOS or Windows would be greatly appreciated.
