This is only the information for R compile time. 
If I have a binary installation, my current development 
environment could be different. Granted, for c++ 
compilers should match down to the version number.

Actually, libims is sitting below the Rdisop/src/imslib folder,
and is compiled via the Makevars Makefile. Afterwards I copy the 
libims.dll into the Rdisop/src directory.

On Unix both Rdisop.so and libims.so are picked up during install 
and copied to site-library/Rdisop/libs/ 

The same mechanism under Windows copies only Rdisop.dll over.
Any hint which shared objects are used during R CMD INSTALL ?
I tried to locate the script or Makefile snippet responsible for this,
but failed miserably :-(

Thanks for any hints,
