When a package's documentation contains \Sexpr{}, R CMD build will
build the manual to PDF. I wonder if the full LaTeX log could be
suppressed in this case. Currently it looks like this:

$ R CMD build foo

* checking for file ‘foo/DESCRIPTION’ ... OK
* preparing ‘foo’:
* checking DESCRIPTION meta-information ... OK
* installing the package to process help pages
* building the PDF package manual
Hmm ... looks like a package
