It's obvious ... it's the X11 support library, R_X11.so on Solaris, in the
modules directory.  I don't see that it is worth giving more details, as it
indicates that the installation is faulty and probably needs to be re-done

Did you check the R Installation and Adminstration manual, and the comments
about setting umask correctly, BTW?
