Well, I am simply following as much as my, probably limited, understanding allows. I am using a stock Debian install, r-base and other packages from debian, and extra packages from CRAN. My package follows, as far as I can tell, the manual. If I am doing something else I am not conscious of it.

At least thatīs what I tried to do.

Iīll rather use my imagination for something else. This is a problem with my own package, that in fact passes R CMD check.

Here we go: The package concerned is my own, which passes check fine. I include \code{\link{plot.default}} in a help page. After R CMD INSTALL this page gets installed in

 /usr/local/lib/R/site-library/mypackage/html/page.html and when clicking on the plot.default link, it points to

 /usr/local/lib/R/site-library/graphics/html/plotdefault.html

 instead of

/usr/lib/R/library/graphics/html/plotdefault.html

where in fact lives.

Both locations appear with .libPaths().

Any other information that can be of help?
