  Hmmm.  I don't quite understand why it's looking for 'reshape', but
the short answer to this one is:  do install.packages("reshape") (to get
the reshape package from your regular CRAN mirror), then try again.  If
you get another error, install _that_ package, then try one more time.
Keep going until it works.  (Sorry this is a bit tedious, but it should
only take a few minutes -- in the meantime I will try to clean things up.)
