It seems there are problems finding the graphviz headers. This will 
depend on how you installed the graphviz package and how your system 
looks through libraries.

A quick fix is to use the environment variable LD_LIBRARY_PATH to set 
the library path. Try something like
  # export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/lib/graphviz
with the exact path depending on your graphviz install. This is followed 
by installing Rgraphviz from the same shell.
