Sorry, but what exactly is your question? "Provide help with what?"

If it is about building / using / extending / ... R on Debian/Ubuntu systems,
come to the r-sig-debian list.  Subscribe first before you can post.

If you wonder about what you need to build R on Debian, the current
Build-Depends entry in our debian/control file is 

Build-Depends: gcc (>= 4:4.1.0), g++ (>= 4:4.1.0), gfortran (>= 4:4.1.0), libblas-dev, liblapack-dev (>= 3.1.1), tcl8.5-dev, tk8.5-dev, bison, groff-base, libncurses5-dev, libreadline5-dev, debhelper (>= 5.0.0), texi2html, texinfo (>= 4.1-2), libbz2-dev, libpcre3-dev, xpdf-reader, zlib1g-dev, libpng12-dev, libjpeg62-dev, libx11-dev, libxt-dev, x11proto-core-dev, libpango1.0-dev, libcairo2-dev, libtiff4-dev, xvfb, xauth, xfonts-base, texlive-base, texlive-latex-base, texlive-generic-recommended, texlive-fonts-recommended, texlive-extra-utils, texlive-latex-recommended, texlive-latex-extra, texinfo, texi2html, openjdk-6-jdk [!arm !hppa !kfreebsd-i386 !kfreebsd-amd64 !hurd-i386]

so you need a tad morethan libx11-dev.
