In /etc/fstab, I have the following.
tmpfs /tmp tmpfs
defaults,size=100M,mode=1777,noexec,nosuid 0 0
Mounting /tmp with "noexec" is a security measure, since /tmp may
easily become a vulnerable spot on a Linux system.

Running "R CMD INSTALL rgl" from my reiserfs / partition was enough
for the ./configure script to get executed and for rgl to build
properly . Now I can dyn.load() rgl with no error messages,
although it is somewhat crashy. I will report here if I get any
meaningful error messages.
Thanks goes to all who contributed with their suggestions.
