I can reproduce this providing the path to the gage source tree
you'll see that this builds the dataPrep vignette first, and then the gage
vignette. It seems like dataPrep loads data bods from pathview into the global
environment, and when the gage vignette is being processed it attempts to load
an identically named data set into the (same) global environment.
The (partial) output of buildVignettes is in gage/vignettes/gage.tex; editing
gage.Rnw to include a print(ls()) early in the vignette confirms that an object
'bods' already exists.
It's surprising to me that R re-uses the same environment to build each
vignette, and I'll take this up on the R-devel mailing list.
The data() function can arrange to load data into an arbitrary environment; for
a function it seems better not to write to the global environment, and something
env = new.env(parent=emptyenv())
obj = data("bods",envir=env)
bods = env[[obj]]
Hopefully this helps to address your problem.

> so far, I can think of anything wrong with gage package. because the manual install and vignette creating worked. The only problem I am sure is that R CMD build --keep-empty-dirs --no-resave-data behave differently from the manual process. Could you help to check into the problem here? Thank you! I am cc’ing the devel list see if other people got the same problem.
