Replying to micha:

It would be good to understand what it is any why it is missing first.

My research indicates the spatstat package contained the shapefiles vignette at some version in the past. It is installed correctly and loads, however vignette(package="spatstat") returns no vignettes now. So the package installed but without any vignettes. No idea why, but it supposedly has several according to various sites around the internet.

Trying to do

install.packages("spatstat", dependencied=TRUE)

leads to some errors. OTOH, we have the regular maptools package installed, and it contains a vignette: "combine_maptools", with a 4 page coverage of importing a shapefile and doing some simple dissolving of features, and attaching attribute data. Maybe that would be a reasonable replacement for the missing shapefile vignette.

missing vignette("shapefiles") commented out in the quickstart in trunk with r10840.
