I'm trying to update my "perturb" package to get rid of some small warning messages. The examples in "perturb" use the "Duncan" dataset from the "car" package and I have "car" installed in R. But when I run "R CMD check", I get an error message

> require("car")

Loading required package: car
Warning in library(package, lib.loc = lib.loc, character.only = TRUE, logical.return = TRUE, :

  there is no package called 'car'
> data(Duncan)

Warning in data(Duncan) : data set 'Duncan' not found

I've also tried creating an environment variable "export R_LIBRARY_DIR=/home/john/lib/R/library/" before running R CMD check. That made no difference. Can anyone point me in the right direction? Do I have to install packages in R_HOME?
