[R] Installing a "package" of my own functions

I've just moved from R 0.49 to R 0.61 and I'm trying to get the functions
I've made to work as a package.

I created a directory called ~/mine/R and put all the functions I wanted in
as files called  name.R
I created files DESCRIPTION and TITLE in ~/mine 

Then as root I ran R INSTALL mine from ~
This gave :

solzhenitsyn:~king# R INSTALL mine
Installing package `mine' ...

No man pages found in package `mine'

On starting R I get the message 
Error in parse(file, n, text, prompt) : syntax error on line 260

and the library doesn't seem to be there

What am I doing wrong?
