I'm not sure that's what I meant, but I can't be sure, since I haven't
seen your source. What I meant is a package dependency, i.e. the
existing ff on CRAN is version 2.2-14.2 and it depends on bit without
saying what version of bit is needed. The existing bit is 1.1-15.2 with
no dependency on ff.
So you can force the new ff to use the new bit by giving the version
Depends: bit (>= 2.0)
but it's not so obvious how to make the new bit depend on the new ff.
There's no way to say that the dependency is only to a help page, and
circular strong dependencies are messy, so I'd suggest you use one of
the other options I offered: a dynamic link in the Rd file, or no link
