You have shipped growth with symbolic links to rmutil, and that is not even
listed as a Depends: in the DESCRIPTION. Symbolic links do not even exist
on some file systems!  (What happens with a VFAT file system on Linux,
or an SMB-mounted one?)

Could you please re-package this with the missing files? And it would be
very helpful to have correct dependencies listed. For the Windows port I
have put up today I copied the files across from rmutil.

As you know, my preference would be to have your packages in a single
bundle. To get all the cross-links in the man page one has to install your
packages in a certain order, and it would be helpful to know what it is! I
_think_ it is reverse-alphabetical, but am not sure even if it can be done
on one pass now (it used not to be able to).  This sort of thing would be
much easier to get right with a single package.


[Is this the sort of bug you think I should be sending to r-help? I am
sending it to the R-bugs database, in any case, so please tell R-bugs when
it is fixed.]
