On my gentoo sparc:

platform sparc64-unknown-linux-gnu

arch     sparc64
os       linux-gnu

system sparc64, linux-gnu
status
major 2
minor 0.0
year 2004
month 10
day 04
language R

behavior is the same UNLESS mozilla is already running in which case

         file:///tmp/Rtmpzu1Um5/.R/doc/html/index.html

is displayed.

help.start() works just fine from my x86 linux box:

          _
platform i686-pc-linux-gnu

arch     i686
os       linux-gnu

system i686, linux-gnu
status
major 2
minor 0.0
year 2004
month 10
day 04
language R
