[Rd] rebuilding vignettes in 2.13-0-alpha fails if name of source dir is not package name

Dear list,

I have been checking my package ('analogue') using R2.13-0-alpha (details of exact svn version appended below) and the R CMD check procedure is generating an error rebuilding a vignette in the package, which raises a NOTE in the check.

The log printed to screen during check shows:

* checking re-building of vignettes ... NOTE
Error in re-building vignettes:
Error in pkgVignettes(package = package, dir = dir, lib.loc = lib.loc) :   directory '/home/gavin/work/R/packages/analogue/analogue_check/pkg.Rcheck/vign_test/analogue' does not exist Calls: buildVignettes -> pkgVignettes
Execution halted

The entire log is appended below the sessionInfo() output.

If I look in the directory where I am checking the package, I have pkg.Rcheck and inside the I have vign_test. Inside that directory I have a 'pkg' directory, but no 'analogue' directory.

My source is in a directory 'pkg' after the set-up provided by r-forge.r-project.net.

It looks like the code expects a directory with the same name as the package name in vign_test or the directory in vign_test is not being named correctly.

R CMD check proceeds without this issue in R 2.12-patched.

If you need further information, let me know.

All the best,

00check.log - ignore the missing documentation and documentation mismatch warnings - they are for code I am currently checking/working on that only exists in my local source tree not in the R-forge repository nor in the package sources on CRAN.
