I tried to bypass R CMD check myPackage2 and did the following
R CMD build myPackage2
R CMD INSTALL -l ~/Rlibs myPackage2
and this works, I can load myPackage2 into my R session. Wondering why R
CMD check failed and is it not necessary for R CMD check to work before
I can build the package?

Have you *installed* myPackage1 before trying to check myPackage2?
This sort of structure certainly works for me (VarianceGamma and
SkewHyperbolic depend on HyperbolicDist).
