plaxes was never part of R.  My memory was that it was part of the add-on
package multiv, and indeed in the S sources I find

plaxes <- function(a,b) {

       segments(   min(a),0,  max(a),0   )
       segments(   0,min(b),  0,max(b)   )


Looks like it has been removed from multiv in the R port, quite possibly
because it appears it was completely undocumented.  If you can supply a
help file plaxes.Rd I am sure the maintainer of multiv will be happy to
consider adding it.
