If I omit the \alias{houseprices} from the second line of a data
documentation file houseprices.Rd, R CMD check gives the warning message:

Undocumented code objects:
All user-level objects in a package should have documentation entries.
See the chapter 'Writing R documentation files' in manual 'Writing R

I can build the package without error, but the help file for houseprices
is missing.  It would be good to have a message that gives a more
direct indication of what is wrong.

Running R CMD check on the directory at 
demonstrates the point.
