[Bioc-devel] new package build problems

I'm trying to put together a new package submission, "rgsepd", and I've ran
into an error I can't figure out. Hoping to talk with someone with more
experience on the bioconductor build system.

The build report is here

The package has built fine on OSX and Linux, but is now crashing trying to
construct the Vignette on Windows. I don't see any error message reported,
just that the vignette failed. So I don't know how to debug it anymore.
Earlier versions had reported various file-not-found errors, so I could
track them down and fix them, it was file case-sensitivity or forward-slash
vs backslash on various imported files.  On the latest revision 0.99.2, the
moscato1 BUILD failed, but it was working in 0.99.1. I'm kind of at a loss,
does moscato1 not like knitr ?
The content of the error log only says it didn't make the file, as far as I
can tell:

Is there any way to get more information for debugging?

Thanks for your help.
