[Rd] R CMD check in Windows

Hi all,

R CMD check does not work for me under Windows. This is the error

R CMD check mypackage.tar.gz
* checking for working latex ... OK
tar: and: Not found in archive
tar: Settings/miguez/ ... /00_pkg_src: Not found in archive
tar: Error exit delayed from previous errors
Error: cannot untar mypackage.tar.gz

I know tar is available because R CMD build created the tarball in the 
first place and man tar works.

I'm mostly working in Linux but if I can fix this it would be nice. Ok 
now I'm thinking that I might have an old version of perl installed and 
this might be the problem. Any suggestions/explanations are welcome.
