I tried to build R-2.14.0 on cygwin using the commands:
./configure --with-x=no

I started to get a whole lot of errors starting with:
/cygdrive/c/Users/mcarter/src/R-2.14.0/src/modules/internet/Rhttpd.c:275: undefined reference to `_R_InputHandlers'
which I have pasted at 


I'm aware that there is a cygwinports ports, but it seems outdated, and when I tried installing it, it was very lengthy and seemed more trouble that it was worth. I abandoned the installation attempt.

Any tips on a way forward?
