Well, then you have to enlighten us as of where you get it from,  
because it's not from CRAN. If you compiled it yourself from sources,  
then you cannot just move it from one machine to another unless you  
also copy the dependencies (gfortran library in your case). Please be  
specific about what you are doing otherwise we have no way of helping
