You'll need something like:


(these values were for OSX some time ago, but the three values should be 
enough). For GDAL, the path to gdal-config is all that is needed. This is 
from system.file("README", package="rgdal"), but as you don't have rgdal 
installed, it's harder to find.

Hope this helps,
