That is a snapshot: we are working on the `platform independent'
code right now. Please be patient: snapshots can be unstable.

That was an incorrect call in 0.64. It needs named arguments:
file <- system.file("INDEX", pkg = help, lib = lib.loc)

Yes. Basically the new system.file() did not work as documented: it now
