It is right, rather than you: it did as you asked and not as you wanted.

gannet% R CMD Rd2dvi --help
Usage: R CMD Rd2dvi [options] files
Generate DVI (or PDF) output from the Rd sources specified by files, by
either giving the paths to the files, or the path to a directory with
the sources of a package.
You haven't called this with the option to give what you expected. Note
what follows the `or'. That will give Package 'mypack' as the title.
