If .../<pkg>/man/ contains a filename beginning with [, such as
[.datetimes, Rdconvlib.pl cannot convert that help file into latex at
INSTALL time.  [Using --no-latex is a workaround.]

The error given is:

# R INSTALL ssCatalogues
 >>> Building/Updating help pages for package `ssCatalogues'
     Formats: text html latex example
/^[.datetimes$/: unmatched [] in regexp at /vol/R/etc/Rdconvlib.pl line
1322, <rdfile> chunk 36.

Unfortunately the script stops at that point, so none of the following
help files are installed.
