The error message is suggesting there is some problem with loading
that file. Have your rebuilt permissions recently? Disk Utility.app
is the the approapriate starting poit for permissions fixes.

So it is in a location where R is not expecting to find it. I will bow
out now, since I am not sure that reinstalling X11 in the /usr/ tree
is the right strategy (or even needed ... see below). There may be a
path argument that could be set, but I would need to read through the
available manual material before I maybe got a clue.( And then it
would still be a guess.)

There is an application named Terminal (or Terminal.app) which is by
default in your Applications/Utilities/ folder. It lets you execute
Unix commands. I am not able to see the /usr/ folder tree with my
Finder setup, so I can only look at it with Terminal. Maybe someone
has a hint about how to let Finder peek behind the Unix curtain.
