Please note that is not the correct fix. From the ONEWS in 2.0.1:

     o   The undocumented C-level entry point R_IsNaNorNA has been
         removed.  It was used in a couple of packages, and should be
         replaced by a call to the documented macro ISNAN.

The ggobi list are now operational again (or at least they have had a burst of activity), and that would be the appropriate place to pursue this.
