[R] drawing arrows with rgl

I am looking for a package which allows me to draw arrows (cylinders
with cones on them, basically) in 3d images produced with rgl. Is such
a thing available? 

I did notice the 'compositions' package, which contains
'arrow3D'. However, it relies on 'tensorA', which fails to install on
my machine with the error message copied below. If anyone can help me
fix this problem, that would do the trick too.
