[Rd] creating a package without lazy loading

When I do a   

  R CMD build --binary   

then I get the messages at the end of this post unless I specify 

  LazyLoad: no 

in the DESCRIPRION file.  If I do that then everything 
proceeds smoothly.  R CMD check proceeds smoothly in
either case. Is there something I should be aware 
of that is causing this message when I do not turn off
lazy loading?

I am using Windows XP and R 2.0.1 beta dated 2004-11-04.

Error in tools:::.read_description(file) :
        file '/DESCRIPTION' does not exist
Execution halted
make: *** [lazyload] Error 1
*** Installation of zoo failed ***

Removing 'C:/PROGRA~1/R/RW2001~1/library/zoo'
