Let me add, that if you are going to stay with R-1.8.1 for some 
unbelievable reason, you can compile from sources (the one that ends 
with .tar.gz) yourself (follow .../src/gnuwin32/readme.packages). That 
might be much harder than upgrading, though - and we cannot promise that 
a recent package version works under outdated versions of R.
