Scanning various lists for R, I've noticed that a few people have raised the
question of getting the "rgl" package to run in R on the Mac operating
system.  As far as I can tell (and I must admit to being a novice here), the
problem has to do with the inclusion of the /usr/X11R6/lib in R's
environment, masking one framework with another.  More than one of the
people commenting on the problem seemed to suggest that it should be fairly
simple to fix or at least temporarily hack.  However, it is not clear to me
how to do it, given that I know very little about UNIX and even less about
R.  Could someone please give step-by-step instructions on what I need to do
to get rgl working in OS X?  Thanks a lot.
