R chek of package VR is broken (PR#1683)

That's not an error in the VR bundle (sic), but it is an error *by you* in
the usage of R CMD check (sic). From `Writing R extensions'
<p>Using <code>R CMD check</code>, the R package checker, one can test whether
<em>source</em> R packages work correctly.
and the under-qualified pilot applied it to a *binary* installed package,
despite the emphasized warning.
