I just tried running R CMD check on relaimpo_1.2-2.tar.gz from CRAN, and it gave no error, only the warning

You didn't say whether this is the "new version" you were testing. If it is, then I'd guess that you have survey installed in a place that R CMD check doesn't know about. Do you normally have two libraries in your .libPaths()?

If you were trying something newer than 1.2-2, then I think you'll have to make it available somewhere for us to try if you want us to diagnose the problem.
