[Rd] Telling R CMD check where to find libraries

Hello everybody,

Currently I'm developing a library, which uses some functions from another package (namely plotrix). Consequently, I listed this dependency in the DESCRIPTION file. When I try to run "R CMD check mypackage", the check fails, for the library plotrix cannot be found on the system. As far as I understood "R CMD check" uses --vanilla implicitly, thus, no startup files are read. Hence, plotrix cannot be found by "R CMD check", since it is only installed locally (I've no admin privileges on this machine) and the path to the library is given in .Rprofile, which in turn is not read by "R CMD check".

If I provide the flag "-l /path/to/site/libs", it works as expected but with the side effect that the test installation is carried out in this directory as well, which I do not like either (this directory should contain only stable packages and not packages which are still under construction). So which possibilities do I have?

BR

Thorn
