[R] R CMD check

I am unclear on whether to run R CMD check pgkname as user or as root on Linux.  When running as user, after all the latex, html, and man files are created, I get the following error message:

Rdconv(): Couldn't open '': Permission denied

Has anyone dealt with that message?

When I run R CMD check a second time, all latex, html, etc. are recreated which takes quite a while.  Is there a way for R CMD check to compile only the help files that have changed since the last check (the way that R CMD INSTALL does)?
