It should if you specify 'source' (ie run the install.packages() function).

Worst case fetch the .tar.gz by hand and run R CMD INSTALL on it.

(Long story: We currently fail on 'old-R' 2.15.* as we didn't declare the
Depends on R (>= 3.0.*) needed for vignettes, so the CRAN Windows builder
said it would not generate a binary.  This will get fixed when we ship
0.10.6, possibly in a few days.)
