Summary:                    Cannot install packages from CRAN
First of all, thank you, I am enormously grateful to you for delivering
this package.
However, when I attempt to install packages from CRAN, I receive a
relocation error when the mirror list should appear.

Full output:
> install.packages('Rcpp')
Installing package into
(as ‘lib’ is unspecified)
--- Please select a CRAN mirror for use in this session ---
Error in url("http://cran.r-project.org/CRAN_mirrors.csv") : 
  internet routines cannot be loaded
In addition: Warning message:
In url("http://cran.r-project.org/CRAN_mirrors.csv") :
  unable to load shared object '/opt/csw/lib/R/modules//internet.so':
  ld.so.1: R: fatal: relocation error: file
/opt/csw/lib/R/modules//internet.so: symbol accept: referenced symbol not

I believe the issue lies in the double forward slash before 'internet.so'.
Is it something I can fix on my machines, or does the package need to be
fixed? If it's a self fix, how can I do that?

Again, thank you!
