    You'd be better off first checking if the package exists, as it does here:
      sudo apt-get install r-cran-tkrplot
    which will get you tkrplot pre-built. Doesn't get much easier.

But if you didn't grok that that 90 minutes ago, I am probably still wasting
a few bits in vain with this.  

Oh well , "l'espoir fait vivre."  Maybe it'll help someone else.
