[R] Off-line help.

For some reason, off-line help seems no longer to be working
in R for me.

I.e. if I do, e.g.,

	> help(plot,offline=T)

***nothing*** happens.  Previously, (before I re-installed R to
get command-line editing working, I think) if did this, a file
called ``plot.ps'' was created in the current working directory,
and I could happily lpr this file.  Now .... nadda.

I have a ***vague*** recollection that when I was reconfiguring/
re-installing R, a message flashed past on the screen to the effect
that .dvi help files would not be available, but I didn't pay much
attention at the time.  I have no idea why this should be the case;
nothing had changed except for my installing the readline package.

Any suggestions as to what I can/should do to get offline/postscript
help to come back?
