I had the same problem, but, unfortunately, a slightly different error message. My error message said:

> library(rimage)

Error in dyn.load(x, as.logical(local), as.logical(now)) :

        unable to load shared library
'/usr/lib/R/library/rimage/libs/rimage.so':   libfftw.so.2: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
Error in library(rimage) : .First.lib failed for 'rimage'

So I took the hint and said

yum install libfftw.so.2

and this installed libfftw,
which cured the problem.

But you did not get this error message about libfftw.
