I am trying to install rgdal on a Linux cluster, but am running into some issues. I have successfully installed gdal and proj4, but when I try to build rgdal, I receive the message that "proj_api.h not found in standard or given locations". proj_api.h is located at /bin/proj4/include/proj_api.h. I have added the path to $PATH, however I still can't compile it.

How can I specify the path so that I can install rgdal?

I modified my code to provide links to proj_api.h. Here it is.

install.packages("rgdal",lib="./R_Packages",method="curl", configure.args = c("--with-proj-include=/p/home/bin/proj4/include","--with-proj-lib=/p/home/bin/proj4/lib"))
