No, not really.
1) for a portable package you will need static GDAL.
2) GDAL can make use of a wide range of external software to read raster
files: without quite a lot of the optional ones it is not much use for
rgdal and other R packages. Simon needs to build that for Mavericks,
and statically too.
However, Fellows has ignored all the advice to use the Snow Leopard
package of R 3.1.0 if he wants rgdal. That is in the current manual
and was posted to this list recently
is by far the easiest solution.
