Apparently not.  I did a complete update.packages() which reinstalled a
great number of packages (I have a great number in my personal library).
There were complaints about 4 packages, one of which was "copula", but
"gsl" was not one of them.

I would have *thought* that if "gsl" needed to be reinstalled, then 
update.packages() would have done this.

It also makes no sense to me --- the install of "copula" complained 
about not being able to find a shared object library (presumably of
fortran or C or some such code), not about being unable to load "gsl".

Be that as it were, I did an install (a reinstall) of "gsl" successfully 
and then the install of copula was also smooth and successful.
