Please ask questions like this on the R-devel mailing list, so everyone 
can see the answers (and can provide better ones).

When you install a package R will automatically create an index of the 
sort you want.  It will only break it up by starting letter ("--A--", 
etc.) if there are more than 100 entries.  The index is stored in 
RHOME/library/<package name>/html/00Index.html.

"R CMD Rd2dvi" will also create an alphabetical table of contents in 
various formats.  (I believe it's alphabetical by filename, but lists 
the internal name in the TOC; if those are different, it will appear not 
to be alphabetical.)
