No, until now I did not try another OS, but I will, since xps has to work on all three OSes.

I showed you the output of R-2.12.2 first and then the output of R-2.13.0, so that you can see that on the same machine with the same file it works with one version but not the other.

Is it possible to build the vignettes from the command line?

Sorry, I do not understand what you mean. root.scheme does not change the path, otherwise it would not work on all older versions of R.

Maybe the download of "R-2.13.0.pkg" is corrupted, but then nothing should work, or am I wrong?
