      Have you tried the "maxLik" package?  If that is not adequate, you 
can check "CRAN Task View: Optimization and Mathematical Programming" 
(http://cran.fhcrc.org/web/views/Optimization.html).  Or try the new 
"RSiteSearch.function" in the "RSiteSearch" package.  If none of these 
adequate, please provide another post with more detail about what you've 
tried and why it does not seem adequate, preferably providing provide 
commented, minimal, self-contained, reproducible code, as suggeste in 
the posting guide "http://www.R-project.org/posting-guide.html". 

      Hope this helps.
