Thank you very much. This worked including generating .chm file. The resulting
package is installable under R GUI on Windows XP, which is sufficient for me.
Let me point out that I did not succeed to install any package
(including the standard ones like rpart) on Windows using R CMD INSTALL <package>,
although I have Rtools and perl installed, running and in the path.
The error message for windows binary package rpart from CRAN is:
Error in Rdinfo(RdFiles[i]) : missing/empty \name field in 'E:/R/rpart/man/rpart.Rd.gz
Rd files must have a non-empty \name.

This also produced a package installable by the standard procedure under
Windows GUI. Thank you for pointing this out. (Again, R CMD INSTALL does
not work for the resulting package.)
All the best, Petr.
