Thanks for that - I attempted to install the earlier versions I had been 
successful with before - Rggobi 1.0.0 and ggobi 1.0.0-beta. The R side 
of things wouldn't compile out of the box due to a change in the 
R_IsNaNorNA function. This caused a problem in RSGgobi.c, which I fixed 
by adding the following patch:

static int G_IsNaNorNA(double f)
   return (R_IsNaN(f) || R_IsNA(f));

and changed

I can at least load the package and start ggobi now.
