Your observation is correct.  What currently happens is something like

	make R
	for pkg in PKGS; do
	  maybe rebuild pkg examples/help pages
	  try to run the examples

This will fail if the tests for pkg1 assume that pkg2 help/examples must
be there.

We could easily change the `make R' to `make; make help; make examples'
but I am not sure that this is the right thing.  Conceptually, `eda' is
an add-on package and all that must be there is base (Rlang/Rstat), so I
think the example should be changed.
