This is an older rpm that Michele Alzeta contributed for Mandrake 10.0
(and that was a long time ago, before Mandrakesoft merged with Connectiva
to become Mandriva).  And it is for R-2.0.0

In my experience with Mandrake distros, I have found it is easy to
download the most recent sources and compile your own version of R.

Unless you have a typo, this is also an older version of R.  Get the newer
sources and recompile.  I don't know if Michele is still active in
maintaining R for Mandrake.  But he has a site for R and Mandrake in
italian and this may provide some first clues.
