Dear all,
I'm trying to install in R the package blme that has been removed from R 
cran but it is still in the Archive:

I have a Mac OSX and I have been trying with the following command from 
the Shell:

R CMD INSTALL --build 

getting the following answer: 
invalid package ‘0.01-4.tar.gz’

Can somebody help me? Are there other ways?
Thanks in advance,
