Just a note regarding the install location change between graphviz 2.8
and 2.12... In the devel version of Rgraphviz, the configure script
has been patched to detect these and do the right thing (worked in my
testing, but confirmation would be great).

Also, for the OS X users, you don't get to set LD_LIBRARY_PATH, but
