[R] Hmisc and Ubuntu (aptitude install)

I'm trying to get the Hmisc module on my Ubuntu Hardy Heron install.
I tried getting Hmisc from within R by issuing the standard
'install.packages' command, but it said I needed 'gfortran' to
compile.  I thought I could circumvent this by using 'aptitude' to get
the package 'r-cran-hmisc', but when I got it, the package had
critical missing parts (got 404s).  So, I'll be trying to go back and
download 'gfortran', but can anybody tell me if this aptitude ubuntu
package should be kept up to date and is just currently overlooked?
