Can you find out which files RoboHELP is complaining about being read-only?
I bet it's only a few makefiles that RH needs to write to.

If RH permits it, maybe you can keep the makefiles locally, while keeping
the content source read-only in PVCS.

Sorry, I don't have RH handy, and it's been a while since I used it, so I
can't verify if that's possible.
