I have a clean/fresh install so this is related to package not updated in Ubuntu.
IMHO this indicates a "buglet" in Depends syntax. If I am right, 0.99875-2
should not be installed on R-2.6.0 or newer. Using Depends somenthing like
R (<= 2.5.1) would result in proper dependencies, but I see that this is leading
to additional work for package developer in general.

OK, Thanks!
