[Rd] packages checks on OS X with 2.12 devel

I'm checking packages under the devel version on OS X

> sessionInfo()
R version 2.12.0 Under development (unstable) (2010-08-08 r52687)
Platform: x86_64-apple-darwin9.8.0/x86_64 (64-bit)

I install packages via install.packages with type = "source" (I stick
to arch=x86_64). I've had no issues with installs.

When I check packages via

   R --arch=x86_64 CMD check package

I see:

   * using platform: x86_64-apple-darwin9.8.0 (64-bit)
   * loading checks for arch ‘i386’
   * loading checks for arch ‘x86_64’
   ** running examples for arch ‘i386’

The check then fails since the packages are not installed on i386. I tried

   R --arch=x86_64 --no-multiarch CMD check package

but that still runs checks on x86_64 and i386. I didn't find anything
else in the "what's new" for the latest devel version.

I'd prefer not to install the full crane and bioconductor set in both
architectures. Any suggestions (especially for the documentation that
I'm sure exists but I can't find).
