I'm preparing my package for submission to CRAN. In one script, it gives the titular error:
Error in as.environment(pos): no item called "package:shapefiles" on the search list
Error during wrapup: no item called "package:shapefiles" on the search list

is in DESCRIPTION. I have numerous other package dependencies which are imported the same way (correctly, I believe), and none of them produce this error. I don't see why this is behaving differently therefore, and would like to avoid having either issue before submitting to CRAN. The code that calls this package, in my script, is
Script is here, for reference.
Thanks in advance for any ideas!
