 + If you have the sources, it is feasible and likely to be easy :

if there are no *.c , *f files it depends on, but "only" R scripts(*.R"=, it is  easy, 
else, it might be complicated but it is not desesperate case (I sometimes have to write things like that). 

Anyway, one can have private packages one builds oneself (else, it would be impossible to test packages before making them standard)...
Detailed explanations can be found in 

(and colleagues||friends||the_lazy_web can help you, if it is something you find this direction complicated)

+ If you have "only" binaries, I do not see any solution except reminding what it did, and finding out/rewriting  the same functionalities. 

Good luck and have nice days
