Here's the quick fix:

;;; the following from M Maechler (maechler@stat.math.ethz.ch)
(defun R () "Call 'R', the  'S clone' of Robert & Ross from NZ"
  (let ((inferior-S-program "R"))
    (setq inferior-S-help-command "help(\"%s\")\n"); let fails...
    (setenv "PAGER" "cat") ;-- a MUST for the old-style (nroff) help  above !
