No, the pdf version is not normally installed. If you want to see the
same content on a locally installed package, run
then browse to the package. The pdf files are just concatenated
versions of all the help pages shown in that index.
You can produce the pdf using
R CMD Rd2dvi --pdf foo
where foo is a directory holding the source code to the package.
Alternatively, as others have suggested, just look at the PDF on CRAN.
