First off, this is not a bug, and should not be reported to r-bugs.
Second, the email address you used bounces.  Please use a real one, or
make it clear that what you used is not real.

warnings() is an R command.  You should try to track this down, but
it's not urgent:  solve the other problems first.

hhc is the Microsoft help compiler.  It is needed if you want to use
CHMHELP, but you should be able to a package without it.  You'll need
to modify the MkRules file in src/gnuwin32, setting WINHELP = NO.

readme.packages gives instructions on getting the help compiler.
