AW: [R] running Rcmd INSTALL, again

Indeed, there is no file named "dlltool" anywhere around here!
So, at last I am beginning to suspect that my collection of tools is
What I have got is "rw1020sp.zip" and
"http://www.stats.ox.ac.uk/pub/bdr/RWin/tools.zip". These are properly
istalled, I think.
readme.packages says "If your package has no C nor Fortran nor C++ sources,
see `Simple ports'
near the bottom of this file." I don't have any of these sources; going to
the bottom, readme.packages says:
"You will need
suitable versions of Unix tools including make, sh, rm, sed, awk,
mkdir, echo, cp and cat; we have packaged a set at
perl5, available via http://www.activestate.com/Products/ActivePerl/"
I might have misunderstood something here.
Q: Do I have to compile R myself in order to be able to use Rcmd?
Q: Do I have to get "bin-msvcrt-2000-03-27.zip",
"binutils-19990818-1-msvcrt.zip", and "gcc-2.95.2-1-msvcrt.zip" from
"http://www.stats.ox.ac.uk/pub/bdr/RWin/tools.zip", even if my package has
no C nor Fortran nor C++ sources?
