thank you for your tips. But before version 0.70.570 rgl was running 
fine on my system. All necessary GL files are installed.

Duncan Murdoch is working on a configure script to get rgl also work on 
Mac OSX. Some of his changes breaks things for FreeBSD. We tested it 
without posting on r-help at .

Duncan now tries to find a solution for all platforms.
