I am looking for a package which allows me to draw arrows (cylinders with cones on them, basically) in 3d images produced with rgl. Is such a thing available?

I did notice the 'compositions' package, which contains 'arrow3D'. However, it relies on 'tensorA', which fails to install on my machine with the error message copied below. If anyone can help me fix this problem, that would do the trick too.
