Hmm, well.... I probably wouldn't suggest that you roll 3 years worth of bugs in R back in, but it obviously is a conundrum, whether to do that or to fix issues that have cropped up in a package over three years.
The author seems to have a beef with CRAN (we saw an outburst less than a week ago), but from what I gather, Rstem got rolled into RTextTools, which _is_ on CRAN, so you might get away with installing that, then get the sentiment-tarball from CRAN, unpack it, modify dependencies, and see whether sentiment installs from its local directory. (You can also get it from the author's github, but that hasn't been touch for three years either, and modifying probably isn't easier that way.)
It's not unlikely that you will need a copy of "Writing R Extensions" at hand.
