[Rd] R CMD build question

On Solaris when my package is built, I get the following result:

creating vignettes ...Segmentation Fault - core dumped

My question isn't why I get a segfault, but why does build return an OK 
after such an inauspicious event? Is build only supposed to error out if 
something more central to the package is off?

R CMD check does issue a warning that the vignette is missing, so maybe 
that is the intended result.
