[Rd] R-2.0.0 Install problem for package bundle with inter-dependent n amespaces

I have a revised version of the gregmisc package, which I've converted into a package bundle each of which has a namespace: gplots, gmodels, gdata, gtoools. Of course, there are interdependencies among these namespaces:

	gsun374: /tmp [11]> cd gregmisc/
	gsun374: gregmisc [12]> grep import */NAMESPACE
	gdata/NAMESPACE:importFrom(gtools, odd, invalid, mixedsort)
	gmodels/NAMESPACE:importFrom(MASS, ginv)
	gplots/NAMESPACE:importFrom(gtools, invalid)
	gplots/NAMESPACE:importFrom(gtools, odd)
	gplots/NAMESPACE:importFrom(gdata, nobs)

Under R-1.9.1, this package bundle passes R CMD check and installs happily. However, under yesterday's R-2.0.0-alpha, the package fails to install (& hence pass CMD CHECK) with the error

because the gdata package is the last in the bundle to be installed, so it is not yet present.

So, what is the proper way to handle this? Is there some way to manually specify the package install order?
