For the record (and similarly to what Martin Maechler mentioned 
previously in this thread) it is perfectly possible to include a 
$R_PKG_ROOT/inst/unitTests directory (or similar) with tests. This will 
make sure the directory is included in binary (and installed) packages 
as well. Open the Windows binary package zip file for RSQLite, for example.

Kind regards,
