Thanks for the responses guys.

I used to have RH9 installed on this machine and I found out about the
separate developer packages then. I thought that I had got the relevant
XFree devel package installed, but although it showed up in the rpm database
as being present, the required files were not present. I did a forced rpm
upgrade from the WhiteBox updates directory and that problem is now fixed,
at least for car. Marc, thanks for the pointer on the rgl problem. However,
I have a slightly different problem with the install of this package. It
gets through to the point where it tries to make the rgl.so from the various
.o files and fails then, as follows:


g++ -I/usr/lib/R/include -I/usr/X11R6/include -DHAVE_PNG_H
-I/usr/include -I/usr/local/include  -Wall -pedantic -fno-exceptions
-fno-rtti -fPIC  -O2 -g -march=i386 -mcpu=i686 -c glgui.cpp -o glgui.o

collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
make: *** [rgl.so] Error 1

No doubt another failed dependency........... DOH!
