Take a look at ?Startup.  You can create a Rprofile file 
which loads these packages from the start.

I would like to make them part of the basic start-up package set (like base, ctest, etc.) using something short of recompiling a special Windows version of R.  Is this possible?  I examined the autoload() command but this seems to target a single command of package, and only apply during a single run of R.  Is there an initiation text file I could modify?  I can find no mention in the documentation of how this might be done.
