Thanks. I had already tried to install with menu Package &
Data:Package Installer from CRAN (Sources). That crashed R.
Now on your advice, I ran
> install.packages('rgl', type = 'source', lib = '/Library/Frameworks/
trying URL 'http://lib.stat.cmu.edu/R/CRAN/src/contrib/rgl_0.76.tar.gz'

So it's not seeing X11, even though I had it running.
