[Bioc-devel] GSL on Windows

You need to make sure both i386 and x64 versions of GSL are installed under c:\GnuWin32, for a directory structure like this:


(Also I would recommend using a more descriptive name than c:\GnuWin32, perhaps call it c:\GSL?)

And then notice how the DirichletMultinomial Makevars.win references R_ARCH, will will have the value of 'i386' when building the 32-bit DLL of your package, and 'x64' when building the 64-bit DLL.
