Dear All,
I am running Debian testing on my box and I have R 2.9.0 installed from 
the standard repositories.
I downloaded the package source from
http://cran.r-project.org/web/packages/Cairo/index.html
but when I try to install it on my system, this is what I get

$ sudo R CMD INSTALL Cairo_1.4-4.tar.gz

Is there a header file missing? Or is there anything wrong with my system?
Many thanks
