[Rd] Bug in acepack (PR#2352)

From: <vikram_at_mayin.org>

This ancient bug was tracked to the acepack library, line 556 in line src/avas.f

 The troublesome line is:

        if (x(n).gt.x(1)) go to 30

 Since the input arguments are empty, referencing x(1) and x(n) cause a Segmentation fault, and cause R to crash. Acepack author and maintainer Rob Tibshirani <tibs@utstat.toronto.edu> has been contacted with this information. This is not a bug with R, but with acepack, and should be closed.
