This is my package, but I don't think there's anything wrong with
the package (the check summary on CRAN says it's OK). Does this happen
with all packages? Have you tried a different mirror? (123 K seems
like a reasonable size for this package).
On the other hand, the specific error message says the problem
is that R can't find the "tar" command -- is it in your path?
