I can confirm that Graphviz doesn't instal these headers in 2.14 but  
I do see them in 2.12. I don't think I'm doing anything unusual in  
the graphviz port to cause this, so perhaps something changed in  
Graphviz during that time. Perhaps the Rgraphviz developers will have  
to update their code. I've asked for assistance on the Graphviz
