You said that you are running Mac OS X 10.5.8.
From the above you appear to be running a 32 bit version of R-3.0.2.
That is not the version of R available on CRAN. It is a 64 bit version intended for OS X 10.6 and higher.
You must have either compiled it yourself or obtained it from elsewhere.
You appear to be trying to install 64-bit packages for a 32 bit version of R.
That is not possible. So that’s why you are failing to install a binary version.
BTW: The menu Packages & Data > Package Installer is from the R GUI for Mac OS X.
