There is an issue on R-Forge server with Windows binary packages.
According to the log files, there is no gfortran compiler and all
packages with Fortran source can cannot be build.

But you can compile the packages from source as long as you have the
required tools installed.

in Rterm type:

installRmetrics("fGarch", repos="http://R-Forge.R-project.org", type =
"source", suggests = FALSE)

Note with 'suggests = FALSE' suggested packages will not be installed.
