[R] how to exclude some packages from help.search() ?

I have installed RGTk2 to satisfy other package requirements. 
I am not planning to use it in my own work.

Occasionally I search through the R help using the help.search() function,
and every time it returns me lots of references to the functions in the
RGtk2 package, which I don't need.
I would like to avoid them.

At present, I have renamed the file hsearch.rds in the RGtk2 directory.

This worked, however, help.search now gives a warning, that it didn't find
that file.

Is there any other way to avoid extraneous information, returned by
help.search, which is not such crude as mine?
