I have a problem when checking the package 'probdistr' (on probability  
I got this warning

* checking index information ... WARNING
Vignettes with missing or empty \VignetteIndexEntry:
  [1] "probdistr-chi"        "probdistr-contextra"  "probdistr-discrete"

[13] "probdistr-misc"       "probdistr-mult"       "probdistr-pareto"
[16] "probdistr-student"
See the information on INDEX files and package subdirectories in the
chapter 'Creating R packages' of the 'Writing R Extensions' manual.

The warning tells me \VignetteIndexEntry is missing however there is  
one in probdistr-main.Rnw (Sweave file calling all other files via  
\SweaveInput{probdistr-XXXXX}). Let us note this file is not listed in  
the above files...

But the build is ok

* checking for file 'pkg/DESCRIPTION' ... OK
* preparing 'pkg':
* checking DESCRIPTION meta-information ... OK
* installing the package to re-build vignettes
* Installing *source* package ‘probdistr’ ...

Does someone have an idea about this?

Thanks in advance
