[R-SIG-Mac] help() start page - how to set

I am trying to get StatET (an Eclipse plugin for R/S) working on MacOS.
I can bring up a functioning R console within Eclipse but have a
problem with help().
If I set options browser="/usr/bin/open" and htmlHelp=TRUE, then
help(name) brings up the appropriate help page in the default browser.
However, help() with no argument brings up help(help). This is what
happens with help() running R in a Terminal. What I would like to get
is the help index page which is at /Library/Frameworks/R.framework/
Versions/2.7/Resources/doc/html/index.html as when one selects Help in
the R gui.
Is there any way to do this?
