Here at WSL we installed R-1.8.1 from the sources. We got, however, 
errors when compiling refman.pdf. The resulting file was not readable in 
Acrobat's reader. We then did

dvips -o refman.ps -ta4 refman.dvi
ps2pdf refman.ps refman.pdf

Now the .pdf is readable, but has no internal hyperlinks. It is not 
possible to search for strings inside the pdf.

Is this intentional, or did we miss a switch?

Is there a file refman.html? We did not find it per Google.
