[BioC] Rredland installation difficulties

I wish to read BioPAX level 2 pathway files from the National Cancer  
Institute's 'Pathway Interaction Database'.  Rredland was recommended  
to me which looks looks very promising.  Perhaps these pathways can  
even be expressed as a bioc graph...

I have enountered some of problems, leading to these questions and  

1) Lacking librdf, I used darwin ports to install it on my MacBook  
(Leopard) laptop.  This installed lots of libraries to /opt/local/ 
lib.  Rredland seems to want dynamic libraries in /usr/local/lib.  Is  
this a mac os x tiger/leopard difference?   Do I run into this because  
I used the Tiger binary, in the absence of a Leopard binary?  Is a  
Leopard binary planned for the future?  Shall I try to build from  

2) (minor) The 'Reference Manual' link at http://www.bioconductor.org/packages/release/bioc/html/Rredland.html 
  points to       http://www.bioconductor.org/packages/release/bioc/,  
rather than to a document.
