Well, it seems like it can't find the right include files it needs  
from your "proj" install, see:

Can you find proj_api.h? Try `locate proj_api.h` ... is it there?

You're using:

> R CMD install --configure-args='--with-proj-include=/sw/include/ 
> proj' rgdal

Depending on what the locate command tells you about where proj_api.h  
is, perhaps you'll need to change that. Would '--with-proj-include=/sw/ 
include/proj' suffice?

Not sure what you'll have to set it to precisely, but that's why the  
compile is bombing on you right now.
