With the standard setup unchanged from 2.7.2, I am seeing

make[3]: Leaving directory `/tmp/buildd/r-base-2.8.0~20081005/po' make[2]: Leaving directory `/tmp/buildd/r-base-2.8.0~20081005/po' you should 'make docs' now ...

and indeed, diff'ing Makefile.in reveals a new dependency on Rfaq.css

which does not seem to be included. Consequently none of the html manuals are made.

Simply copying Rman.css to Rfaq.css fixes the bug but may not be what was intended in terms of markup.
