That list comes from CRAN.  You can go there and follow the links 
through contributed packages until you get to it at


and then look at CRAN checks:   and see that on most platforms it is 
generating errors, so the binary of the package can't be built.  You 
could help by figuring out what the error is and telling the author how 
to fix it, if you're really interested; otherwise you'll have to wait 
until he finds the time to fix it on his own.
