Now is there any way to cross check these against what R actually

be kept in sync with CRAN?
Well, I'm certainly not so bored as to want to repackage all of CRAN. :)
I think the safest thing is to query R for what it has installed, and
not be concerned about whether it was built manually from CRAN, or
provided pre-built by Fedora.
