Since that is not R, you might do better to talk first to the maintainer.

Well, that is quite correct, and means your RPY has been misbuild, at a
guess against R 1.8.x.  I guess it needs to be compiled against the
version of R you actually used. It's an RPY/rpy and not an R issue so this 
is not the right place.
