[R] "clock skew" when building libraries

I am new to Linux. I recently installed R (0.64.1 using rpm for Red Hat 6.0);
then I installed several libraries.  When following the steps in VR complements
to R, everything worked fine but I got the following messages (this happened
for every single one of the libraries installed):

make: *** Warning: File /usr/lib/R/etc/Makeconf' has modification time in the
future (938981789>929390309)

make: *** Warning: Clock skew detected. Your build may be incomplete

Files in the etc, bin, afm, and doc directories have date of 3-Oct-1999.
However, the directories themselves have the right date (7-June-1999). What
have I done wrong? Should I worry or do something?  Note that the libraries
(lme, survival5, MASS,integrate) seem to be working OK.
