I can't be sure whether the rest of the text might be helpful without
seeing it. Certainly, an error message in building r.in.gdal won't
necessarily include the string "gdal". However:

This would certainly explain the failure. It indicates that the GDAL
library hasn't been built correctly. You may be able to fix the
problem by running:

	ranlib /usr/local/lib/gdal.a
