I went there and say a source package:



Reference manual:Rglpk.pdf
Package source:Rglpk_0.6-0.tar.gz  <<<!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! SOURCE !!!!!!!!!!!>>>
Windows binaries:r-devel: Rglpk_0.6-0.zip, r-release: Rglpk_0.6-0.zip,
r-oldrel: Rglpk_0.6-0.zip
OS X Snow Leopard binaries:r-release: Rglpk_0.6-0.tgz, r-oldrel: Rglpk_0.6-0.tgz
OS X Mavericks binaries:r-release: Rglpk_0.5-2.tgz
Old sources:Rglpk archive

Or: http://cran.r-project.org/src/contrib/Rglpk_0.6-0.tar.gz
