>From the shell's prompt:

  emacs -q
  C-h f help-for-help RET

Emacs displays the "*Help*" buffer with the following contents:

help-for-help is an interactive compiled Lisp function in `help'.
It is bound to C-h ?, C-h <f1>, C-h <help>, C-h C-h, <help> ?, <help> <f1>, 
<help> <help>, <help> C-h.

Help command.

Now switch to the "*Help*" buffer, go to the `help' link and press
RET.  Instead of displaying the definition of the help-for-help
function, Emacs dings and displays an error message in the echo area:

Cannot find definition of `help-for-help' in library `help'
