that explains everything.
Why do you do so?
1) Start with no '.Rout.save'
2) R CMD check <pkg>
will produce one in <pkg>.Rcheck/tests/myTest.Rout
Copy it to the package source, i.e. typically
cp <pkg>.Rcheck/tests/myTest.Rout <pkg>/tests/myTest.Rout.save
3) R CMD check <pkg>
now *will* do the comparison and give no difference hopefully
