i managed to build r-devel 1.5.0 on win2k 

during the build, i experienced the following problems:

1. Failure in make when starting from scratch
make in src/gnuwin fails at the first run because it tries to use
Rpwd.exe. It does, however, create Rpwd.exe before it fails.
Copying Rpwd.exe to a directory on the path the allows 
a complete pass through make.

2. Warning when building docs
make docs

(Function and Variable Index) [53] (R-lang.vrs [54]) Appendix A [55]
[56] )
(see the transcript file for additional information)
! pdfTeX warning (dest): name{Writing R documentation} has been
referenced but
does not exist, replaced by a fixed one

! pdfTeX warning (dest): name{Preface} has been referenced but does not
replaced by a fixed one

this might indicate some broken links in the pdf file.

3. Warning when building docs
D:\Work\R-devel\doc\manual>make -f Makefile.win info
makeinfo  -D UseExternalXrefs R-FAQ.texi
makeinfo  -D UseExternalXrefs R-admin.texi
makeinfo  -D UseExternalXrefs R-data.texi
makeinfo  -D UseExternalXrefs R-exts.texi
makeinfo  -D UseExternalXrefs R-intro.texi
R-intro.texi:781: warning: Info cannot handle `:' in index entry `:'.
makeinfo  -D UseExternalXrefs R-lang.texi

4. after installation:
Help -> R language (html)
starts mozilla 0.9.9 (which is the default browser on this machine),
but when i go to the search page and enter a search term,
the browser does NOT jump to any other page, it stays on the search

tells one to send messages to
but mail sent there bounces
