I'm in trouble when trying to update rgdal in 3.1.0 in Mavericks. There is no binary and installing for source claims that I've no libproj in standard or given locations. I do have several libproj both in /usr/local/lib and in /Library/Frameworks/PROJ.framework/Versions/4.8/unix/lib/, how can I to force the build to look to the later that I'm more confident is the wright one?
Any help will be very much appreciated.
