  1. search() is ok for R on my Windows XP: it shows all the loaded packages. If you want to see all the intalled packages, try library().
  2. try detach(package:nameofpackage) to remove it from seach list. To uninstall it, simply delete its directory that you can see through searchpaths().
  3. nothing to do with Perl or make...

HTH, Rogerio.
