[R] Package check using --as-cran

I use R 2.15.2 on MacosX 10.8.2

I have a problem checking for a package that I want to submit in CRAN.

When I check like that, no problem or warning are detected.
system("R CMD check '[path]/phenology'")

I create the .tar.gz package with that. The file phenology_3.43.tar.gz 
is generated. I can install the package and it works.
system("R CMD build '[path]/phenology'")

But if I check it using --as-cran as required by CRAN policy,
system("R CMD check '[path]/phenology_3.43.tar.gz' --as-cran")

I get an error:
* using log directory ‘[path]/Phenology Package/phenology.Rcheck’
* using R version 2.15.2 (2012-10-26)

Installation failed.
See ‘[path]/phenology.Rcheck/00install.out’ for details.

The file 00install.out has no more information, it is just a copy of 
these informations.

I would like to know if there is a "verbose" version of the check.

Thanks a lot
