I'm running an instance of R under Solaris 10.(sun4u sparc). When I invoke
the x11() interface, I get the following error:

> x11()
Error in x11() : X11 module cannot be loaded
In addition: Warning message:
In x11() :
  unable to load shared library '/usr/local/lib/R/modules//R_X11.so':
  ld.so.1: R: fatal: libpangocairo-1.0.so.0: open failed: No such file or

The module is not present in my environment. Is there anything I need to
install for this to work?
