At least CRAN does not keep copies of old binaries, there is a version 
2.0-8 for R-2.14.x, and version 1.6-3.1 for R-2.13.x, but hese R 
versions are rather ancient, hence I'd suggest to try to learn how to 
install from sources, in most cases it is not too hard.

Or ask the maintainer for a fix again so that we see a proper update on 
CRAN soon.
