Dear Jan

There is an excelent spatial library wich includes Moran's I and other 
tests, developed by Richard Davis and Robin Reich from Colorado State 
University but I am not sure that it is currently available in the R site 
since it is still on development.  You may want to email them to see if you 
can have access to their library. You can search for their contact 
information at 

I hope that this helps
