I don't understand that....biocLite() just calls install.packages()
which just grabs the package via HTTP on port 80, so if you can use
your web browser, you ought to be able to do this.

If you have downloaded the source package, you want to do this:
where X Y and Z match the actual version number on the source package
you downloaded. But it's better to use biocLite().
