That did not come true. But my guess is that running LaTeX is what fails (and that the problem is neither in R nor in the Per script).

so it expects that Sweave.sty is somewhere in your search path. Is that the case?

Furthermore, the R code in vignettes should always run, but compiling the resulting .tex file just has to work at build time. So there are vignettes (at least in my packages) that depend on local sty/bib/bst files not included in the package and thus cannot be (easily) compiled by other people.
