Your R is broken -- no X11. Maybe you compiled it yourself without having
the proper development packages for X11.

1) a) Install either the r-base package that Ubuntu has for you (as it will
have working X11(, or
b) Install the 'backported' R for Ubuntu available on every CRAN mirror
2) a) In the Ubuntu package for rgl:
sudo apt-get install r-cran-rgl
b) Install at least the _build-dependencies_ for it
sudo apt-get install build-dep r-cran-rgl
and then proceed to your manual install.
You may want to subscribe to r-sig-debian to ask Debian / Ubuntu questions there.
