[Rd] Devel version of R CMD build may create packages with incomplete doc/ directories

An .Rnw file in the vignettes/ directory might reasonably \usepackage or 
\include .sty, .bib, or other (e.g., image) files in the same directory 
or a sub-directory. The .Rnw file is copied to inst/doc and hence 
installed, but the additional files are not. This means that the 
installed .Rnw files are not useful. What can the package author do to 
ensure that the installed .Rnw file is fully functional? Or is it more 
appropriate to add only Stangled and pdf versions of .Rnw to the 
installed doc/ directory?
