[Rd] Parallel R CMD check?

Running R CMD check on a package can take quite a lot of time. Checks 
seem like they could be run in parallel (separate processes for, e.g., 
codoc, examples, tests, ...). Is there a way to do this? My current 
usage is typically

    R CMD build <pkg>
    R CMD check pkg_x.y.z.tar.gz

Thanks for any hints,
