I have detected it only in one package, which happens to conatin links to base and graphics. It seems they are generated at install time simply by assuming the root of all packages is the same.

Obviously this is not a problem in Windows, where all packages appear to be installed, at least by default, in the same tree.

Umm, maybe I need R help in vimhelp format...

Do you know of any other example I could check where a help page in one package contains a link to another package?
