[Rd] Improve error message for bad NAMESPACE file?

If a user mis-types a directive in the NAMESPACE file, the error message is quite cryptic. If it was possible to report the offending line/text that would likely give a valuable clue to the user.

Try putting the following line in NAMESPACE


Then R CMD INSTALL says,
