[BioC] 64-bit R - problem with affxparser

A toolchain to build bioC packages from source under R win 64 bit is 
available at http://download.cos.name/incoming/Rtools64.zip  (see 
https://stat.ethz.ch/pipermail/r-devel/2010-January/056280.html for the 
original post by Gong Yu).

However, some packages don't build/compile correctly, notably affxparser 
(see the liverpool build / check for affxparser at 

This blocks the build of the aroma.affymetrix package under R win 64 
(among others) as it depends on it - could we find the source of this 
problem (I cc'd Dr. Hansen, the maintainer of the package)? This is a 
problem for many users right now
