First off, this is not a bug, and should not be reported to r-bugs. Second, the email address you used bounces. Please use a real one, or make it clear that what you used is not real.

warnings() is an R command. You should try to track this down, but it's not urgent: solve the other problems first.

hhc is the Microsoft help compiler. It is needed if you want to use CHMHELP, but you should be able to a package without it. You'll need to modify the MkRules file in src/gnuwin32, setting WINHELP = NO.

readme.packages gives instructions on getting the help compiler.
