What version or build?  

You may have an old r executable and a newer R library. IIRC since R 2.5.0
R_Visible is no longer exported.

Possible quick fix: apt-get install littler to get a current version, or grab
the sources and rebuild it yourself.

Probably the same story. One possibility is that you may have Debian versions
of littler and rkward, but a local R -- and so you circumventing the package
management system.

On current (and past) Debian system, the supplied littler and R play along
very nicely.

Of a certain R vintage, yes.
