[R-pkg-devel] R CMD check NOTE - Long paths in package

I have a package which provides headers for a C++ library (similar to the
BH package).  However, the C++ library has some heavily nested components
within its' structure so when I run R CMD check I get the following NOTE:

Tarballs are only required to store paths of up to 100 bytes and cannot
store those of more than 256 bytes, with restrictions including to 100
bytes for the final component.

Is this a major problem?  As this is a 'NOTE' I am under the impression
that the long paths are not critical but I want to make sure.

Thank you,
