I don't remember if this is platform independent, but
R CMD foo
on Windows will set up standard environment variables then try to
execute "foo". If "foo" isn't one of the internal commands listed by
R CMD --help
then it will just go looking for it like any other command in the path.
(This is why "R CMD install" gives a funny error message: the internal
command is "INSTALL", so "R CMD install" just tries to execute "install".)
