Actually, survey sits in the very same library with all other packages, and boot (called from within a relaimpo function) works fine. I just fixed the encoding warning (adding "Encoding: latin1" to the description file), and tried R CMD check once more. Surprisingly, the check now also ran all examples without errors - I can only guess that there has been an issue with a path with some nonstandard character in the way (though survey is not located in such a path). Anyway, it works now.

Regards, Ulrike
