[Rd] NAMESPACE problem: import(zoo) but 'zoo' could not be loaded

       I'm having problems creating a real NAMESPACE to replace the pro 
forma one in the fda package on R-Forge.  "R CMD check" complains, 
"Error: package 'zoo' could not be loaded ... there is no package called 
'zoo'";  see below.  I get this both with and without "import(zoo)" in 


p.s.  The current code including this problem can be obtained through 
anonymous access via "svn checkout

In addition: Warning message:

It looks like this package has a loading problem when not on .libPaths:
