[Rd] R 2.0.0: problem: installing --with-package-versions

Hello R developers,

installing R 2.0.0 from source on a Linux Debian system (gcc 3.2.2)

example: RUnit 0.4.0 (also on CRAN)

R20 CMD INSTALL -l /mnt/local/R/R-2.0.x-libs-EpiR --with-package-versions RUnit_0.4.0.tar.gz

or after untaring
R20 CMD INSTALL -l /mnt/local/R/R-2.0.x-libs-EpiR --with-package-versions RUnit

I get

* Installing *source* package 'RUnit' as 'RUnit_0.4.0' ...
** R
** inst
** save image
Error in loadNamespace(package, lib.loc, keep.source, TRUE, TRUE) :
         package 'RUnit' does not have a name space
Execution halted
ERROR: execution of package source for 'RUnit' failed

This happens only with the --with-package-versions option. I scanned the manual and ?INSTALL but did not find mention of this behaviour.

Any suggestion what I have overlooked or how to cure the failure?
