[Rd] Windows fixed/etc/Makeconf SHELL incorrect?

R developers,

On windows, it seems like R_HOME/etc/Makeconf has

SHELL = /bin/sh

instead of the location of Rtools' sh. I think this is because
R_HOME/src/gnuwin32/fixed/etc/Makeconf needs to define SHELL as just
sh (since Rtools/bin  has to be on the PATH).

This is of consequence with R CMD config.
