kind of "yes".
However, since you got the source,
- first the "R for Windows" FAQ = src/gnuwin32/rw-faq
- then src/gnuwin32/INSTALL
which will tell you where to get all the tools you need before you can even
*think* of compiling R for windows.
It starts with the GNU C compiler suite of the mingw32 tool box
(again, see the INSTALL mentioned above).
