      Have you considered library(survival) including "survreg"? 

      Also, have you "read the posting guide! 
http://www.R-project.org/posting-guide.html"?  You might be able to get 
answers to many questions faster than you could from this list.  And 
even if you don't get the answer, the posting guide might help you 
formulate your question so the response(s) might be more helpful than 

      I got 60 hits for "life table" in an "R site search" at 
"www.r-project.org" -> search;  that included other suggestions that 
might interest you. 

      hope this helps.
