Jun hi again!

Sorry for bothering. Although I had no problem with building Windows package under Linux, I noticed that man pages are not processed as they should or maybe I have a problem with my setup.

My package is called 'GeneticsPed'. Instead of HTML or text files I just got a GeneticsPed.Rd.gz in man directory of a package (this is within GeneticsPed_0.1.zip file!). The file GeneticsPed.Rd.gz contains is one file, where all man pages are in in Rd format. When I install package I just get this (GeneticsPed.Rd.gz) file in library.

I understand that I should dig into Makefiles and I tried, but I got lost.   I added below the output I got when compiling and there are some errors, but as I said I got lost when searching for cause.

Do you or any other from r-help have any clue what is wrong?

$ make pkg-GeneticsPed_0.1
PATH=/home/packages/RCrossBuild/cross-tools/bin:/home/packages/RCrossBuild/cross-tools/mingw32/bin:.:/home/ggorjan/bin:/sbin:/bin:/usr/sbin:/usr/bin:/usr/X11R6/bin:/usr/local/sbin:/usr/local/bin:.:/home/ggorjan/apiis/apiis/bin:/home/ggorjan/apiis/apiis/../ref_breedprg/bin; \
export mypkg=`echo GeneticsPed_0.1 | cut -d'_' -f1,1`; \ cd /home/packages/RCrossBuild/pkgsrc; \
rm -rf $mypkg; \
tar zxf GeneticsPed_0.1.tar.gz; \
