The R.SlackBuild script does not install a package unless the build
compeletes with exit code 0. Because building the vignettes failed it exited
with a non-0 exit code and is not installed. This is standard
SlackBuilds.org practice for non-core packages.

I could send you the build script off the mail list, but like all linux
distros each has a reason for building packages as they do.
