This question has been asked here before. Which distribution are you using?

If you are using debian or ubuntu the admin should install
libgdal1-dev for building gdal. I also recommend installing r-base-dev
if it is not yet installed. It is needed for building most R packages

If the administrator is unreachable: try installing:
and then run install.packages('rgdal',
