Looks like you have two installations of graphviz; the one in sw/ is from fink. I am not sure why it would interfere, but perhaps you should use fink to remove the one in sw.
I assume you saw my post to the group last night...Seth's recommendation to you worked for me once I used gcc_select 3.3 (the original suggestion to me to either export the LD_PATH or specify the graphviz location directly to R did not work).
#check to see that usr/local/lib/graphviz and usr/local/lib/pkginfo exist (created from the graphviz installation)
#make sure gcc3.3 is set up correctly:
sudo gcc_select 3.3
#export the location. Note that the expot command doesn't work in csh or tcsh, so you should use bash
#then compile and install Rgaphviz
R CMD INSTALL Rgraphviz_1.8.0.tar.gz
hope that helps...
