[R] package 'rimage' install error on FreeBSD

After not reaching the package maintainer (takashina@computer.org) I hope someone on R-help@ can help.

I tried to install rimage_0.5-7.tar.gz under FreeBSD-7.0 CURRENT as root with the following command:

    R CMD INSTALL rimage_0.5-7.tar.gz

It stops with the following errors in the configure script:


    checking fftw.h usability... no
    checking fftw.h presence... no
    checking for fftw.h... no

On my system this header file is located under


Different FreeBSD packages need different versions of fftw, so I have three versions installed:


Is it possible that this is the reason for not finding the header?

The installation works well, when giving configure-args with the paths:

R CMD INSTALL --configure-args="--with-fftw-include=/usr/local/include/ --with-jpeg-include=/usr/local/include/" rimage_0.5-7.tar.gz

Anyone else having this problem on FreeBSD?

Many thanks in advance,

Rainer Hurling
