        Clicking "Knit Word" in RStudio 0.99.893 with R 3.3.0, works 
fine with a vignette with "output: word_document".  However, "R CMD 
build" throws the following error:

$ R CMD build pkgW2vignettes
* checking for file ‘pkgW2vignettes/DESCRIPTION’ ... OK
* preparing ‘pkgW2vignettes’:
* checking DESCRIPTION meta-information ... OK
* installing the package to build vignettes
* creating vignettes ... ERROR
Error: processing vignette 'vignette2word_document.Rmd' failed with 
Failed to locate the ‘weave’ output file (by engine ‘knitr::rmarkdown’) 
for vignette with name ‘vignette2word_document’. The following files 
exist in directory ‘.’: ‘vignette1createsObject1.R’, 
‘vignette1createsObject1.Rmd’, ‘vignette1createsObject1.html’, 
‘vignette2confusedByObject1.R’, ‘vignette2confusedByObject1.Rmd’, 
‘vignette2confusedByObject1.html’, ‘vignette2word_document.Rmd’, 
Execution halted

        A toy example showing this problem is in rev. 239 of 
"vignette2word_document.Rmd" in "pkgW2vignettes" on R-Forge 

        Is there a way to get "R CMD build" to work with a vignette with 
output: word_document?
