I am getting the following error while trying to install the RCurl library. I have checked that the curl and the libcurl.so.3 is already installed in the /usr/bin

> install.packages("RCurl")
--- Please select a CRAN mirror for use in this session --- Loading Tcl/Tk interface ... done
trying URL 'http://cran.hostingzero.net/src/contrib/RCurl_0.9-3.tar.gz' Content type 'application/x-gzip' length 150822 bytes (147 Kb) opened URL

The downloaded packages are in

        /tmp/RtmprTpHXJ/downloaded_packages Updating HTML index of packages in '.Library' Warning message:
In install.packages("RCurl") :
  installation of package 'RCurl' had non-zero exit status

It would be great if some one has suggesstion about solving this problem
