[R]package dependence

I want to create several packages, with package Aa depending on functions
in package A. My directories with .r and .Rd are organized as follows


Afre creatin package A with 

R CMD check A 
R CMD INSTALL --library=lib A

I then have
./lib/A/help  etc

If I try to do

R CMD check Aa 
R CMD INSTALL --library=lib Aa

I am getting

* checking examples ... ERROR
and in ./Aa.Rcheck/Aa-Ex.Rout

there is the error signalled

	couldn't find function "function.from.A"
Execution halted

Since I rather want to keep the packages separate, how can I deal with
dependences among packages?

Thanks for help.
