[R] building packages: "R Help for package foo" vs. "HTML Help"?

In building a package, what are the settings in the package files or the 
build commands that
determine whether the compiled HTML help windows have the window title
"R Help for package foo" vs. "HTML Help"?

I often have quite a few help files active, and it is much more 
convenient to navigate among
them if the window has an informative title.

If this is simple to test for in the build process, can/should this be 
tested for
(with a warning) or even enforced/automatically generated in the scripts?
