I will install JAGS on tokay1 today after the builds finish.

Just to clarify: your package depends on CRAN package rjags, which
requires JAGS. But does your package *directly* depend on JAGS i.e.
does it make calls to JAGS directly? Or does it use JAGS only thru
the rjags package? The difference is subtle but important. If the
latter, then you shouldn't have

   SystemRequirements: JAGS(>=4.2.0)http://mcmc-jags.sourceforge.net/

in your DESCRIPTION file. It's the responsibility of the rjags package
to specify this system requirement, which it does with the following

   SystemRequirements: JAGS 4.x.y
