when I do that (see 
https://github.com/mtmorgan/PkgA/tree/parse-Rd-insertRef) and run R CMD 
build I see

$ R CMD build PkgA
* checking for file 'PkgA/DESCRIPTION' ... OK
* preparing 'PkgA':
* checking DESCRIPTION meta-information ... OK
Warning: /tmp/RtmpFDYMzj/Rbuild2deb22881ea6/PkgA/man/fun.Rd:13: unknown 
macro '\insertRef'
* checking for LF line-endings in source and make files
* checking for empty or unneeded directories
* building 'PkgA_0.0.1.tar.gz'

so the problem reported by BiocCheck is already visible in R CMD build.

Consulting the vignette for Rdpack


I see that the solution is to add the line

RdMacros: Rdpack

to the DESCRIPTION file. I disagree with the package author that the 
Rdpack package does not need to be in the Suggests: field; if it were 
not there then how would something like the Bioconductor build system 
know that it needed to have the Rdpack available when the package is built?

I updated the github repo with correct package.
