  I am getting following error messages while trying to compile:

cp -p man/*.Rd  ../../library/base/man
rm -f  ../../library/base/man/BATCH.Rd  ../../library/base/man/COMPILE.Rd

/library/base/man/INSTALL.Rd  ../../library/base/man/REMOVE.Rd

se/man/RHOME.Rd  ../../library/base/man/SHLIB.Rd
echo done > fixRd
cp -p  bin/fwf2table bin/helpPRINT.bat ../../../bin
echo done > fixbin
cp -pr unzip ../..
rm -f ../../unzip/*.h
make -C ./regex
gcc    -DHAVE_STRING_H  -c regex.c -o regex.o
gcc: installation problem, cannot exec `cpp': No such file or directory
make[1]: *** [regex.o] Error 1
make: *** [rlibs] Error 2

   Is this due to the unzip32.dll? Hope not. I am trying to recompile
packages most of all, especially modreg.

Plus, has anyone been able to extend or embed R using VC++? From what I
hear, gcc and VC have different runtime, so this is a no go task. However,
it is possible to use VC runtime by overwriting the original ones that comes
with distriubution. That's why I am trying to recompile.
  Thanks much!

P.S.: I just reregistered for the mail list, so it may take little time.
Could any responder cc: to this e-mail box until then?
