Dear all,

I'm struggling to understand this NOTE in 
r-devel-linux-x86_64-fedora-clang (only)
emmeans is a great package (THX Russell!) but we don't use it anywhere 
in ours.

Only in two man pages we have
... obtained via \code{\link[emmeans]{emmeans}} of package \code{emmeans}.

Previously we had plain text and were asked by users for details.
AFAIK, this is the correct syntax acc. to the REM linking to the man 
page of another package. In the library links work as intended.

Our package is used in a regulated environment where even a NOTE raises 
In all other R-versions and operating systems there is no problem. What 
surprises me is that on Fedora the results depends on the C-compiler. 

Of course, we could use in NAMESPACE
   importFrom(emmeans, emmeans)
but that would force users to install a package they might not need at all.
