I built and checked the package using (R CMD build) and (R CMD check) under IOS system and it is working fine without errors. The gcc version in my system is (GNU Fortran (GCC) 5.2.0) while the gcc version in the CRAN system is 4.9.3. This is the message that I have got from the CRAN:

I ran into this problem with my Delaporte package. GCC 4.9.3 does not
support the IEEE modules, which were added in the GFortran tied to GCC
5.0. I believe you will have to re-write your code to comply with
4.9.3 until Jeroen et. al. release a new version of Rtolls built on a
newer version of GCC.
