 The  error message is that libgdal.so cannot be found - this is the
GDAL C-level binary library, whereas
/usr/local/lib/R/library/rgdal/libs/rgdal.so is the R code that
interfaces to libgdal.so.

 R tries to load rgdal.so, rgdal.so tries to load libgdal.so, can't
find it, fails.

Sadly it doesn't say where it's looking for it. Can you find
libgdal.so anywhere?
