No we can't. Your question was about to make R CMD check happy and
'quiet'. And one answer is to feed it a properly constructed file.

Hm, I doubt that. We have to tell R explicitly to exclude dotfiles,
directories from version control etc pp. Recall the discussion years when
.git was added to the already existing .svn?

In any event, R is open source so you can check what 'build' does and follow
its code into the tools package.

Pass -- I am too pedestrian for owing one of those machines ;-)
