Probably none. The purpose of provide() was to allow one package to subsume
or masquerade as another.  It seems only to have been used incorrectly
for a package to provide itself, which just slowed down searches.  You
will find the lines


in tripack/R/zzz.R and sgeostat/R/est.variogram.R.  Just delete them
and re-install, or edit them out of tripack/R/tripack and
sgeostat/R/sgeostat if you have a pre-compiled version.

If you find any other occurrences, please report them to the package
authors. (We already have for locfit.)
