[Rd] latex warning

Thanks for the answers, Travis CI indeed uses an outdated system, but I
actually use my own recent TeXLive installation on it, exactly because of
this reason (and because I want to avoid sudo).

Obviously, there is something wrong with this installation, but I am
puzzled by not seeing any LaTeX errors, and R CMD check still reporting
one. Maybe not all of the LaTeX output is included in the check log. Or the
check incorrectly detects an error when there is none.
