Trying to install Cairo package through CRAN and although the install goes smoothly I get the following message when trying to load package - have not seen this with other packages where download is normal:

Error : .onLoad failed in loadNamespace() for 'Cairo', details:
  call: dyn.load(file, DLLpath = DLLpath, ...)
  error: unable to load shared object '/Library/Frameworks/R.framework/Versions/3.3/Resources/library/Cairo/libs/':
  dlopen(/Library/Frameworks/R.framework/Versions/3.3/Resources/library/Cairo/libs/, 6): 
  Library not loaded: /opt/X11/lib/libXrender.1.dylib
  Referenced from: /Library/Frameworks/R.framework/Versions/3.3/Resources/library/Cairo/libs/
  Reason: image not found
Error: package or namespace load failed for ‘Cairo’

Any ideas? Thanks.
