[R] Help with X11 display on linux-PPC

I recently compiled and installed R on a linux PPC system.

> version
platform powerpc-unknown-linux-gnu
arch     powerpc
os       linux-gnu
system   powerpc, linux-gnu
major    1
minor    1.1
year     2000
month    August
day      15
language R

The installation seemed to go well, except that configure didn't find X11
support, and consequently I can not output any graphics to an X-window.

if I type x11() in R I get:

> x11()
Error in x11() : the x11 device has not been loaded

Invoking R with "R --gui=X11" doesn't help.

So, how can I get R to load the X11 device?

Can I do this without reinstallation?  How?

If I do need to reinstall, how can I ensure that the installation
configures for X11?

Thanks in Advance,
