I think all of the packages are available as source.  You can look at
?install.packages to see how to use this from within R or look a R CMD
install in a terminal window.
hope this helps,

Let's not spend our time and resources thinking about things that are
so little or so large that all they really do for us is puff us up and
make us feel like gods.  We are mammals, and have not exhausted the
annoying little problems of being mammals.
