I got past the problems I asked about two days ago, thanks. No I am 
CRAN package asypow (the daily package check on CRAN gave warnings due to
.Rd problems, fixed).

Now it PASSED Rcmd check
(WindowsXP home edition, rw2000dev, on a new toshiba laptop, if that 

but then Rcmd build --binary
gives problems:
  preparing package asypow for lazy loading
Error in tools:::.read_description(file) :
    file '/DESCRIPTION' does not exist
Execution halted
make: *** [lazyload] Error 1
*** Installation of asypow failed ***

Removing 'C:/DOCUME~1/HALVOR~1/LOCALS~1/Temp/Rbuild.852/asypow'
* installation failed
but as it passed make check, DESCRIPTION obviuosly is there, so this 
must be symptoms of something else.

Then, adding the line
LazyLoad:             FALSE

Rcmd build --binary
runs without problems!

What is happening?
