    Using the syntax 'install.packages("later") --no-test-load'

The syntax is either
    install.packages("later", type="source", INSTALL_opts="--no-test-load")
from within R (perhaps with repos=NULL if from a local directory) or
    R CMD INSTALL --no-test-load later
from outside of R, where 'later' must be a directory.
