Not as long as R CMD build takes what is in the source dirs.

There are some comments about possible improvements to permission tests
in the code of check, but in any case all files that are to be installed
should be at least 644.  We could relax that for e.g. C source or
headers, but not e.g. for DESCRIPTION.
