Regarding package "tseries", I somewhat inaccurately wrote:

What I meant was that after I downloaded "tseries_0.8-4.tar.gz" from CRAN, and
ran R CMD INSTALL on it, then the resulting package "tseries" under
<prefix>/lib/R/library had no README or /src.  I believe people refer to this
as the "binary package" (though it is in fact mostly ascii).

But, if I explicitly gunzip and untar the file "tseries_0.8-4.tar.gz" (creating
the "source package"), then I see the README file and the /src directory.
Furthermore, the README very helpfully says:

So I will just avoid using "amif" (the "auto mutual information function").
