The installation of (at least html) documentation for private libraries does not
work properly in 0.63.  (If r-devel is not aware of this the problem is that
R/doc/html/function.html and R/doc/html/packages.html get clobbered.)

If you do:


in the subdirectory /home/royle/Rpackages then the package will be installed in
the directory with other R packages and the documentation will be installed
correctly. (This assumes you have write permission on that directory.)
