[R-SIG-Mac] mac OS X 10.5.7 rgdal installation problems

Same problem as before -- you're not telling the build system where to  
find your "proj" install.

You told it where the 'includes' are, now you have to tell it where  
the library is -- just *read* the error message:

> Error: libproj.a not found.
> If the PROJ.4 library is installed in a non-standard location,
> use --configure-args='--with-proj-lib=/opt/local/lib' for example,
> replacing /opt/local/* with appropriate values for your installation.
> If PROJ.4 is not installed, install it.

It's telling you what you need to do, perhaps something like:

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

Does that work?
