[Rd] build package with unicode (farsi) strings

I have a R script file with Persian letters in it defined as a variable:

#' @export
letters_fa <- c('الف','ب','پ','ت','ث','ج','چ','ح','خ','ر','ز','د')

I have specified the encoding field in my DESCRIPTION file of my package.

Encoding: UTF-8

I also included Sys.setlocale(locale="Persian") in my .RProfile, so it is
executed when RCMD is called. However, after a BUILD and INSTALL, when I
access the variable from the package, the characters are not printed
