Yes, it is called "install from source".
Seriously, that is what a compiler does: translate from (human-readable)
source code to (machine-readable) executables. And no, these are generally
not portable across system.

sudo R CMD INSTALL foo_1.2-3.tar.gz
and you probably want to install the r-base-dev package first, as well as
everything you need for building foo.
Three out of two people have difficulties with fractions.
