Builds package vignettes using the same algorithm that

.Rbuildignore, so will not be included in the built package. These
files can be checked into version control, so they can be viewed with
vignette() if the package has been
load_all() without needing to re-build them locally.

The package to use, can be a file path to the package or a

Which dependencies do you want to check? Can be a character vector (selecting from "Depends", "Imports", "LinkingTo", "Suggests", or "Enhances"), or a logical vector.

You can also specify dependencies from one or more additional fields, common ones include:
