Hello there,

I just changed to FreeBSD platform, and want to install R on it. I use
FreeBSD 5.0 and install nearly all packages on the machine. When I use
ports to install R, (cd /usr/ports/math/R-letter, and then type make) I
got the following error information.
../../../../library/methods/libs/methods.so is unchanged
dumping R code in package 'methods'
Fatal error: The X11 shared library could not be loaded.
  The error was /usr/ports/math/R-letter/work/R-1.6.0/modules/R_X11.so:
Undefined symbol "R_GlobalEnv"
Can somebody tell me why and how to fix this problem?

Thank you for your help!

Best wishes,
