I built R in redhat 5.2. I can't get the text-based help tp work (html
help is OK). The message I get is

> help()
Error in help("help", package = "base", lib.loc = .Library) :
        The help file for `help' is missing  

I think that these files  are in the .R/library directory. How can I
get them to work. Note: make info did not work as I dont have version 4.
