I've just committed the changes to R-devel.  Let me know if there is 
anything worse than what I described.

There were a lot of changes to the display of links in help.search() and 
related results, and it's possible I got some of them wrong.  (They are 
tricky because we still try to support static help, but I don't have 
that installed and haven't tested it.)  Please let me know if you come 
across any broken links that look like they are in base R.
