Please point out the point that I am missing:

You need the
-dev package with headers and shared library links for development besides the normal package for deployment. Two different use cases as far as the distro is concerned.
On my distribution:
[email protected]:/tmp$ dpkg -l | grep gdal | cut -c-72 ii libgdal1-1.7.0 1.7.3-6ubuntu3 ii libgdal1-dev 1.7.3-6ubuntu3 [email protected]:/tmp$
R CMD INSTALL rgdal_0.7-8.tar.gz works just fine as you would expect from a CRAN package given all the build-time checks at CRAN.
Update late 2016: As @JoshO’Brien points out in the comment
Minor update: Here in 2016, running Ubuntu 14.04.2,
libgdal1-devis still needed). At least
I get an error to that effect when I attempted to
apt-get install libgdal1
For Ubuntu 16.04 the corresponding line would be
sudo apt-get install libgdal1i
Such renaming of upstream libraries is common; something such as
apt-cache search libgdal can help locate the current package names. The important key though is that the “abstract” development package
libgdal-dev is all that is needed to build as it pulls the “concrete” current run-time package (here:
libgdal1i) in via a dependency.
