Oh, that's right.
I used R.app as well because I have also tried the devtools package which
has a check() function... same result (just to test if it was a path issue).

Indeed, this error comes from the R CMD check command in terminal (sorry to
confuse "building" with the command R CMD build), with the complete
messages below:

There is nothing more in the 00check.log file, just indicating Rd problems.
