ggobi/rggobi on OS X

Currently, the easiest way to get rggobi on OS X is to get Gtk2 from homebrew, then install ggobi from source:

# Install homebrew (if you don't already have it)
brew install gtk+
brew install libxml2

# Set up PKG_CONFIG_PATH so rggobi can find all the pieces

install.packages("rggobi", type = "source")
