I am fairly certain I have observed this myself, and I *think* it simply
stems from running R CMD INSTALL (and alike) from a source directory, as
opposed to a tarball.  I filed it under minor nuisance and didn't care too
much either as the official two-step of 'R CMD build ...; R CMD INSTALL ...'
is just that: the official and recommended way. With which things work.
