R-beta: Error message from library install

I am trying to install a library for my linear models class.  (The
name "st849" comes from the course identification, Statistics 849.)

 # R INSTALL st849
 Installing package `st849' ...
  >>> Building help index for package `st849' ... done.
  >>> Building help pages for package `st849'
 NONE:0: m4: ERROR: EOF in argument list

Should I be concerned about the m4 error?  I am prepared to believe
that it is caused by my not getting the syntax of a help file correct
but I am not sure exactly where the error is.

I will make a tar file of the library available as
for anyone who is interested.  The library is primarily the data from
the examples and exercises in the text "Regression Analysis: Theory,
Methods, and Applications" by Sen and Srivastava (Springer, 1990).
