Thank you very much for the suggestion:  you were spot on with the  
problem.  As you and the package developer suggested, I upgraded R (I  
was running 2.6.*) to 2.9.* and the package installed with no  
problem.  I hadn't known that could be a problem.   Incidentally, is  
there any way to get R to install all the old packages I had before  
when you upgrade, other than doing it manually?
