Even though I know the Rd format might be replaced soon, I am report this just
in case:

The package optional argument for \link is *only* used when \link is in a \code
environment. Example:

  1) This link works: \code{\link[base]{cat}}
  2) But not this one: \link[base]{cat}

It looks like the "base" argument in the second case is not used at all. In HTML
this results in a "missing" link, i.e. the search page is called. It is 
interesting to use \link without \code for non-object help pages such as
"Introduction" etc.
