I've been experimenting with install.packages and it's new ability to
track down dependencies from a list of repositories and encountered

install.packages(c("foo", "bar"), repos="http://cran.r-project.org", 
                 dependencies=c("Depends", "Suggests"))

dependencies 'foo' are not availabledependencies 'bar' are not available

With the following change (see below) I get what I suspect is the
intended warning message:

   dependencies 'foo', 'bar' are not available
