Macports installs its packages in folders that are not standard and
then R packages don't find them (at least that's my understanding of
the reason Macports causes troubles with R packages.) You are asked
not to use it for packages that R will be linking to. So maybe that
error will be a boon rather than a bane. Doing a search on: [ macports
Urbanek] in the archive of r-sig-mac should provide further details.
This really should have been posted there.

GDAL is an external package. http://trac.osgeo.org/gdal/wiki/DownloadingGdalBinaries
rgdal is the R interface package that you would use to get GDAL
