Okay, now I understand. I think I'd call the last of those a bug, and it would seem to me that the install and check scripts should also respect this directive. I've now copied this to the r-bugs list. (This was reported for Windows; I don't know if it applies to other platforms as well.)

Just for clarification: I can see you would use this when you have S-PLUS code in the same directory as R code, and you don't want to include that in an R build. Are there other files that must be excluded?
