[Rd] Installing dependent packages

Hi all,

When installing ggplot2 on with install.packages("ggplot2", dep = T),
the colorspace dependency doesn't get installed (see below for
transcript from R session).  The relevant lines from my description
file are:

Depends: R (>= 2.4), grid, reshape (>= 0.8.0), proto, splines, MASS,
RColorBrewer, colorspace
Suggests: quantreg, Hmisc, mapproj, maps

Have I done something wrong? Or is this a bug in the installation of
dependent packages?



> install.packages("ggplot2", dep = T)
also installing the dependencies 'XML', 'RBGL', 'graph', 'chron',
'acepack', 'proto', 'Hmisc'
