Replying to myself with more information:
(running from Xemacs shell)
Using a package with NO explicit calls to the function na.omit, (but
with some handling of NA's
with other means):
C:\R\rw2001\src\gnuwin32>Rcmd INSTALL ../library/Drogas
Rcmd INSTALL ../library/Drogas
---------- Making package Drogas ------------
adding build stamp to DESCRIPTION
no R files in this package
installing data files
installing man source files
Error: couldn't find function "na.omit"
make: *** [indices] Error 1
make: *** [all] Error 2
make: *** [pkg-Drogas] Error 2
*** Installation of Drogas failed ***
