I had installed my package to the main library directory, and I did use 
link.html.help (as mentioned in the rw-FAQ) after installing the library.

The problem was that I was using *compiled* html help rather than html 
help, and didn't realize that links were created only for the latter. The 
html help works fine.

Thanks for your response -- you pointed me to the source of the problem.
