That was spot on, thanks!
Another thing that came up during compiling/installing the package is
latex: not found 
warnings. They don't affect the correct installation it seems ...
Even so, I never saw the warning before. Does R CMD INSTALL now call latex
whereas it didn't do that earlier?
best, ingmar
