It has been a while since I did this, but it looks like I installed 1.12
from source on macos.  Compilation would likely have been with gcc-3.3, so
you can do 'sudo gcc_select 3.3' to get that behavior, if I remember.  I
also noticed that there is a graphviz build available via fink, but I'm not
sure if that works for Rgraphviz. I haven't tried the PixelGlow route, but I
would tend to agree that it won't be sufficient.
