Been meaning to write a short blog post about it as it also affects two (old)
packages of mine.  My favourite is to just rely on the Rd macros to the
fullest, and I generally just hand-edit it -- no promptPackage() use.

See eg this side-by-side diff of the first of the two I need to update; the
other may follow tomorrow.


This should give you the old one on the left, and the new one -- which is
essentially just references to DESCRIPTION on the right.  As it is short, I
include the new one (indented by three spaces):

   \seealso{\code{\link{cfunction}}, \code{\link{cxxfunction}}}

Hth,  Dirk
