In an empty workspace first load package evd, then load package evir.
a call to any of the routines dgumberl, qgumbel etcetera will now result in an
error message of the form

Error in qgev(p, loc = loc, scale = scale, shape = 0, lower.tail = lower.tail) :

        unused argument(s) (loc = 0, scale = 1, shape = 0, lower.tail = TRUE)

(It seems that evir::dgev masks evd::dgev and that the different parameter names
create a problem in the implementation of dgumbel)

When using mtrace  under R 2.5.0, I consistently get the error:

Error in all.levs[[jj]]: Subscript out of bounds.

The routine is currently unusable.
