That appears to be a message from your tar.  Perhaps try

tar zxvf ade4_1.00.tar.gz

I suspect the first step will fail, and it would be because your pthreads
library is not the right version.  Note that it is using /usr/local/lib,
and perhaps something has installed an older version there?

R packages do not come in rpms.
