[Bioc-devel] Rgraphviz fails to build with graphviz 2.4

I recently upgraded my Gentoo Linux system to graphviz 2.4. I can't seem 
to get "Rgraphviz" to build from source any more. Here's what happens:

 > source("http://www.bioconductor.org/getBioC.R")
 > getBioC("Rgraphviz")

Running getBioC version 0.8  with R version  2.1.1

I had a similar problem with some Ruby packages -- missing graphviz 
config files -- and the Gentoo people had a workaround for that, which I 
applied. So this may be a similar problem. Does anyone know how to work 
around this?
