For which OS/platform? All source packages are archived on CRAN:


and binary packages from CRAN (Windows, various Mac OSX) are in versioned 
directory trees, so R 2.3.1 will choose the 2.3 directory for the latest 
version of the package compatible with it.

If a source package, download sp < 0.9 manually from the Archive, and 
install manually (R CMD INSTALL sp*.tar.gz).
