[Rd] inst/CITATION produced error during Rcmd check <package>

Dear list member,

by running Rcmd check on a package where a customised 'CITATION' file should be included instead of the automatically produced one, the following error occurs:

  adding build stamp to DESCRIPTION
  installing NAMESPACE file and metadata   installing R files
  installing inst files
FIND: Parameter format not correct
make[2]: *** [c:/R/packages/urca/inst] Error 2 make[1]: *** [all] Error 2
make: *** [pkg-urca] Error 2
*** Installation of urca failed ***

When I exclude /inst/CITATION from the package sources, no problems/errors are encountered.
Incidentally, the same error occurs on 'Rcmd check VR':

H:\R\Packages>Rcmd check VR
* checking for working latex ... OK

installing R.css in H:/R/Packages/VR.Rcheck

Looks like `H:/R/Packages/VR' is a package bundle

Installation failed.


Am I doing something wrong? Is the error caused by my OS? Any help or pointers are appreciated.

Best Regards,
