thanks everyone.   My problems were solved by following Peter D's
(offline) suggestion to update all the dependencies: he noted that
log() became generic in R-2.6.0; untb depends on Brobdingnag,
the newest version of which tests for log() being generic [using
isGeneric("log")] and executes different code
depending on the answer.

crisis over!
