Hmisc and Design have been announced by Frank Harrell as not yet
to be available on CRAN because they don't pass "R CMD check" (without
many warnings).
The other 3 packages are on CRAN.  Note however, that for Windows,
new *binary* versions must be made available (by Prof. Brian Ripley or
Duncan Murdoch mainly I think) and there, the newest packages
are dated Sept.1 (look manually for the needed zip files in
 http://cran.R-project.org/bin/windows/contrib/ ).
I'm not entirely sure how the CRAN maintainers populate that
directory, though.
