I just tried running R CMD check on relaimpo_1.2-2.tar.gz from CRAN, and 
it gave no error, only the warning

* checking R code for possible problems ... NOTE
calc.relimp.default: no visible global function definition for

You didn't say whether this is the "new version" you were testing.  If 
it is, then I'd guess that you have survey installed in a place that R 
CMD check doesn't know about.  Do you normally have two libraries in 
your .libPaths()?

If you were trying something newer than 1.2-2, then I think you'll have 
to make it available somewhere for us to try if you want us to diagnose 
the problem.
