You'll have to download it off CRAN.  It IS there.  Go to CRAN, choose your 
server, and then on the left pane, you will see a link named "packages."  The 
link will be http://[your server name]/src/contrib/PACKAGES.html.  Chose 
that.  On the right pane, which is not visually well differentiated from the 
rest of the page, scroll down.  e1071 is there right at the beginning of the 
packages whose names begin with "e".

Have fun,
