To follow up (because I received a few emails off-list), things work now.
I'm not sure what I did differently. In case it is helpful:
I reinstalled R tools, and edited by path so that
files\R\R-2.13.1\bin;C:\Program Files\HTML Help Workshop
was at the beginning.
With this, my attempts at package creation worked.
