Please do not crosspost!  I already replied on StackOverflow:

Let me add that if you weren't on RedHat it would be as easy as
  sudo apt-get install r-cran-foptions
which  would also install gss and all other dependencies of fOptions (as I
happen to have been maintaining this for Debian/Ubuntu for a decade+).
