That's not the quite the same (although it may be what Jonathan wants).
Rd2dvi writes a wrapper. If you use R CMD Rd2dvi --no-clean [files]
you will find the latex file used:

toucan% R CMD Rd2dvi --no-clean --no-preview *.Rd
You may want to clean up by `rm -rf .Rd2dvi29549'
toucan% ls .Rd2dvi29549
Rd.sty   Rd2.aux  Rd2.dvi  Rd2.idx  Rd2.ilg  Rd2.ind  Rd2.log  Rd2.tex 

and Rd2.tex is the file asked for.

Whichever route you take, you will need Rd.sty, from R_HOME/doc/manual.
