I think I had similar problems with gsl on a non-standard installation.
The following steps seemed to work (but are merely the results of
1. Download and extract source code of R-package 'gsl'
2. Use gsl-config --libs to get the path to GSL's lib directory
(-L<path-to-lib>), use gsl-config --cflags to get the path to GSL's
include directory (-I<path-to-include>)
3. Change Makevars in gsl/src:
- Add -L<path-to-lib> to PKG_LIBS
- Add (new) line: PKG_CPPFLAGS=-I<path-to-include>
4. Install gsl via
LDFLAGS;CPPFLAGS=-I<path-to-include>;export CPPFLAGS;R CMD INSTALL gsl
