You need a version of the r-cran-vr package compiled under R 2.0.0. These
have been out for weeks, but will only migrate from Debian unstable to Debian
testing once the most current package is 
-- at least ten days old without any bug reports
-- compiled on all architectures
-- and these two conditions hold for all packages it depends on.

The combination of these three requirements has prevented the package from
migrating to testing.  It will, however, work there -- so in the interim,
please install the package manually from 

and likewise for other packages you may need.  The "apt-pinning" method is
nice too, there are some HOWTOs available.

I'm sorry for the inconvenience. I'll cc r-help as other people may have the
same issue.

Regards,  Dirk
