When I try to install shiny in R (3..5.2) on Linux (RHEL 6) I get a message that a dependency package "httpuv" is missing. When I try to install "httpuv" (both from within R and outside) I get the following error:

I found this same problem with installation of Julia at the following link but it does not work for me because LD_FLAGS is not set
