I believe that your R installation is somehow broken.  The
.installPackageCodeFiles function gets called by the "INSTALL" script in
R/bin, which in turn gets called by install.packages() (which itself is
part of a chain of calls from getBioC).  If that function doesn't exist,
it would seem that your 'tools' package (part of the base installation of
R) is somehow not installed properly most likely.

What happens if you do a 'R INSTALL XXXXX' (where XXXXX is a package) from
the command line?  Or run 'install.packages()' on a non-Bioconductor
