Thanks to Jonathan Baron and Brian Ripley for suggestions.

The problem was, I have set an environment variable R_LIBS (and forgot
it) to the location of an old R library path.
In that case the R script all.R which is generated and executed with the
recently builded new version of R during the compilation of the package
"methods" uses the old package paths instead of the new ones.
