I think for small things like this, the best is to post 
diffs (diff -cb  or  diff -ubBw  if the latter works) to this mailing list.

Bigger things could be sent to ""
 (the people who can actually change the sources in Auckland...).

Thanks for your offer to fix this yourself!
Optimally, you'd also send a patch for the help file (man/prcomp.Rd)!
