Thank you for your work on rgl.

Reading in another thread about your new (inofficial) version of rgl (see below) I tried it with R version 2.5.0 alpha (2007-03-31 r40986) under FreeBSD 7.0-CURRENT. Unfortunately I got the following error:

#R CMD INSTALL rgl_0.70.570.tar.gz
* Installing to library '/usr/local/lib/R/library' * Installing *source* package 'rgl' ...
checking for libpng-config... yes

configure: error: missing required header GL/gl.h ERROR: configuration failed for package 'rgl' ** Removing '/usr/local/lib/R/library/rgl' ** Restoring previous '/usr/local/lib/R/library/rgl'

This version is not able to find any GL files on my system.

I did not have any problems compiling rgl_0.70.564.tar.gz.

If I can test anything please let me know.
