[Rd] Could not create DVI version

In Solaris with R-1.7.0beta from 2003-04-01 I still have a problem with
"R CMD check" after I build a package:

* creating setRNG-manual.tex ... OK
* checking setRNG-manual.tex ... ERROR
Could not create DVI version.
This typically indicates Rd problems.

I can manually gererate the dvi from setRNG-manual.tex, so I don't think
my latex is defective as I speculated last week. The file texput.log

This is TeX, Version 3.14159 (Web2C 7.3.1) (format=latex 2001.1.12)  1

! Emergency stop.
<*> \nonstopmode\inputsetRNG-manual.tex
*** (job aborted, no legal \end found)

I don't know what this is suppose to mean, or whether this is where I am
suppose to look for the source of the problem. Other than the ongoing
occassional segfault problems with sweave (gc?), everything works fine
in Mandrake 9.0 and 9.1 (with R-1.7.0beta from 2003-03-31).
