We both missed part of the posting: he said he tried newer R versions
too. And I get this (on Windows):
package ‘rqpd’ is available as a source package but not as a binary
package ‘rqpd’ is not available (for R version 3.1.1 Patched)
The log on R-forge shows that it was last built for Windows in 2012. So
I think this really is an R-forge bug...
