That worked great, thank you. but it seems I have a new error occurring after the zipping of the help files:

hhc: not found
cp: cannot stat `C:/R/R-2.1.1/src/library/base/chm/base.chm': No such file or di
rectory

make[3]: *** [chm-base] Error 1
make[2]: *** [pkg-base] Error 2
make[1]: *** [rpackage] Error 2

make: *** [all] Error 2

Any advise?
