I needed to recompile rgl after the change to 2.7.11, because I had 
built it to link to files that came with the XQuartz beta. The current 
CRAN binary (0.104.16) was already compiled for 2.7.11,  so it's also 
fine now.

If you install rgl from source after the XQuartz version change, you 
should be okay.
