RGraphviz 1.4.0 says this in its README:

  Installing Rgraphviz:
  The Rgraphviz package requires a bit of extra work beyond 
  simply installing the package itself to run properly.  The user
  must first have installed the GraphViz software provided by AT&T.
  For users of the release version of Rgraphviz from Bioconductor 1.3,
  this must be Graphviz version 1.10.  For users of Rgraphviz for
  Bioconductor 1.4 (or the devel versions leading up to the 1.4 release)
  this must be Graphviz version 1.12.
So you may have to back out graphviz-1.16.

For what it's worth, RGraphviz-1.4.0 built on my Debian testing system (on
which graphviz 1.12 is installed) as a script-generated Debian package which
is available, along with over 400 other CRAN/BioC packages, as part of
Quantian -- see http://dirk.eddelbuettel.com/quantian


Those are my principles, and if you don't like them... well, I have others.
