Do you really have repeated.gz?  Lindsey usually packs his packages with 
the .tgz extension, e.g. at


You need to get repeated.tgz and rmutil.tgz and use

tar zxf rmutil.tgz
tar zxf repeated.tgz
R CMD INSTALL rmutil repeated

Optional (but highly desirable): fix the many warnings you will see, and 
also those from

R CMD check rmutil repeated
