[Rd] R CMD check: unstated dependence on a standard package.

In the recent R-devel version, I receive the following error:

It looks like this package (or one of its dependent packages) has an unstated dependence on a standard package. All dependencies must be declared in DESCRIPTION.
See the information on DESCRIPTION files in the chapter 'Creating R
packages' of the 'Writing R Extensions' manual.

I found the following comment in NEWS.R-2.5.0dev under "CHANGES IN R VERSION 2.4.0" related to two packages only:

When I add 'utils' to "Depends:" in the DESCRIPTION file the error goes away. Could you please confirm that you from now on have to specify also the 'utils' package and other standard package in Depends?
