This is one reason we normally recommend that you install into a separate
library. Then update.packages(checkBuilt = TRUE) is all that is needed.

> as.vector(foo[is.na(foo[, "Priority"]), 1])
will give you a character vector which you can feed to install.packages(),
so it's not complex to do manually.
