I tend to not use devtools for this very potential confusion -- you are at
loss now as to what it does when you presumably simply want a convenient
wrapper for the test functions.

But it turns out that the most likely difference (using '--as-cran' or not)
is likely involved.  Try running

   R CMD check --as-cran rdtLite_1.0.3.tar.gz

and it should fail too.  At least it does for me (but I am cheap so I didn't
install the suggested packages from your interested-looking provenance

Hope this helps,  Dirk
