This does not seem to work completely correctly (checked only on Linux)
if there is more than one pdf file in inst/doc. The pdf files all get
installed in the package doc directory, but library(help = <package>)
ignores some of them.
In my case, in dse1/doc there are files dse-guide.pdf, dse1-guide.pdf,
and dse1-guide-012.pdf. The last should probably be ignored as it is
generated by the sweave process and pulled into dse1-guide.pdf. The
first is the most important one, but is ignored. It is the guide for the
whole bundle which I build from vignettes for the packages, so it
includes the second.
This problem is related to the fact that there is no good place to put
documentation for a bundle (or other group) of packages.
