Yes, all the packages are now on CRAN (spgrass6, the others are in rgdal
or maptools), there is no no need to use the off-CRAN
You could also have stated which platform you are using, because if there
had been a problem, it would have been platform dependent.
The correct current install of spgrass6 is:
on Windows for cygwin, or on other platforms:
install.packages(c("sp", "maptools"), dependencies=TRUE)
install.packages("rgdal") # in case of problems
or just the packages that are not already installed.
