[R] documentation?

Does anyone know where I might BEGIN to look for the reason why the
documentation for R doesn't 'produced' properly on my linux machines?  The
binary is made and seems to run (the demos work), but I don't get any help
pages (ie I get nothing when I type ?contributors).  If I repeatedly run
the 'build-help' command in the bin directory, it will take up where it
broke the last time, and make the html and latex files, and create the
help files, but they are only two bytes long.  After a while I get a
broken pipe message and it stops.  I just changed to a newer version of
perl 5 but it still doesn't work.  What else could be broken?
