I've been assuming the logic was to run R CMD check  first and then R
CMD INSTALL.   I don't think check uses the installed version, so I
guess it doesn't matter, but is there some other reason for doing
install before check? (Or are you just distinguishing development mode
from the normal mode once a package is developed?)
