I tried one under BioC devel (http://www.bioconductor.org/packages/2.12/data/annotation/html/BSgenome.Dmelanogaster.UCSC.dm3.html), but had no success.>  install.packages("BSgenome.Dmelanogaster.UCSC.dm3_1.3.19.tar.gz",repos="null",type="source")

You have found the correct package on the devel page, so I don't think 
your question is whether or not one exists. Instead, it appears you are 
wondering why it didn't install.

This is why we tell people (for example here: 
http://www.bioconductor.org/install/) to do something like



Because a) you don't have to go searching around for the right package 
and b) it just works.

So try installing the package the recommended way, and let us know if 
you have problems.
