Or, to put it differently, what you *should* have done was

<install R + recommended packages>
tar xfz Recommended/VR_7.0-3.tar.gz 
R CMD check VR

(A couple of gotchas in that: You cannot check MASS by itself, only
the entire VR bundle, and you need the other packages installed or the
check chokes on library(nlme))
