First, generally CRAN package building related issues should be posted to R-Package-Devel, not here:

  https://stat.ethz.ch/mailman/listinfo/r-package-devel <https://stat.ethz.ch/mailman/listinfo/r-package-devel>

Second, you might want to review the full CRAN build report for your package, which reports more information across several builds:
