I've been working on a fairly extensive R package for a few years with
ongoing testing with Travis CI. Today, though, I'm seeing an error in
installing the gsl package both at Travis and from the Windows GUI:

install.packages("gsl",repos = getOption("repos"), repo=NULL, type="source")

# gives the following error sequence:

Any ideas?
