[R] gregmisc library (Mandriva)

You may find that you need to use the compilation tools. I gave up on
using R from Mandriva repositories as the R base is usually out of
date and the selection of packages available depends on the interests
of those who produced them. If I knew how rpm spec files worked I
might do something about it for my interests.

Of course if the package is simply R code with no C, C++, Fortran
needing compiling, then unpacking the source in your library location
will do, though you may need to check dependencies.

I do like Mandriva, but for programs like R using install.packages()
and having the relevant devel-packages enables you to keep up to date.
