Thanks for that info.  It works/builds without error or warnings on my RedHat Enterprise 6  with R 2.15.2 version which I use but must be broken somehow on later versions.  I will see if I can find the autobuild warnings error report someplace.

I have no problems with the move if this was simply because of low demand.  However, if there was a build issue with the newest releases that caused problems, I would be happy to address it.  I'll just ask my students to install it from my own locally hosted source archive.
