It does work -- it seems like that at some point you've upgraded your
R packages in an incorrect manner.

Specifically, it looks as if you've installed a new version of R and
just copied over libraries from a previous (pre R-2.10.x) version.

Look at this error message during the install:

Your gplots install immediately aborts after that.

In order to try automagically remedy the situation, you might try
something like:

R> update.packages(checkBuild=TRUE, ask=FALSE)

After that's done, try re-installing gplots.
