Hi guys,

I've been having some problems with updating my 'huxtable' package on CRAN.
The latest issue is that I run a test which renders a rmarkdown document to
PDF, using rmarkdown::render. This passes R CMD check fine on my machine,
on travis and on win-builder, but fails on the CRAN machines as follows:

Last 13 lines of output:
  BEGIN failed--compilation aborted at
D:\Compiler\texmf\scripts\latexmk\perl\latexmk.pl line 122.
  File::Path version 2.08 required--this is only version 1.08 at
D:\Compiler\texmf\scripts\latexmk\perl\latexmk.pl line 122.

This looks like something coming via pandoc, and it also looks as if it is
a function of a very old version of Perl: File::Path version 2.08 came out
in 2009. Version 1.08 is included with Perl 5.8 which came out in 2002.

What's going on here, and can anyone suggest a fix?

In general, is there any info available about the CRAN check servers? I
keep running into problems that are specific to them and cannot be
replicated on any other machine available to me.
