[R] Proper way to document print( ) functions

Frequently we have a print method, say print.myclass, that has a variety of arguments.  If in the .Rd file I say

\method{print}{myclass}(x, myarg)

I get a warning when running R CMD chk:

* checking generic/method consistency ... WARNING
  function(x, ...)
  function(x, myarg)

What is the proper way to handle this?
