[Rd] install.packages() fails if .libPaths() set

Reproducible example:

dir.create("test")
.libPaths("test")
install.packages("relations", type = "source")

Fails with:

...

* installing *source* package ‘relations’ ...
...

** testing if installed package can be loaded *** arch - i386
Error : package ‘sets’ required by ‘relations’ could not be found Error: loading failed
Execution halted

*** arch - x86_64
Error : package ‘sets’ required by ‘relations’ could not be found Error: loading failed
Execution halted
ERROR: loading failed for ‘i386’, ‘x86_64’

If I don't set .libPaths() it installs without error.

This is on a fairly recent version of R-devel (Oct 3) and on R 2.15.1
