[R] building packages in Windows under R 1.2.1

Dear list members,
I'm experiencing difficulty in building a package in R 1.2.1 under Windows
2000, using, as far as I can tell, the same approach that I used
successfully in R 1.2.0.
More specifically, "rcmd build" produces the following error:
C:\rw1021\src\library>c:\rw1021\bin\rcmd build car
Please set TMPDIR to a valid temporary directory
It looked to me as if "rcmd build" wanted an environment variable called
TMPDIR, so I set one, but this didn't help.
Curiously, "rcmd build" under R.1.2.0 (which is also on my system) still works:
C:\rw1021\src\library>c:\rw1020\bin\rcmd build car
* checking for file `car/DESCRIPTION' ... OK
* preparing `car':
* checking whether `INDEX' is up-to-date ... NO
* creating new INDEX
* checking whether `data/00Index' is up-to-date ... NO
* creating new data/00Index
* removing junk files
* building `car_0.6-0.tar.gz'
After this, I can use "rcmd check" and "rcmd install" from version 1.2.1 to
finish the job:
C:\rw1021\src\library>c:\rw1021\bin\rcmd check car
* checking for working latex ... OK
* using log directory C:/rw1021/src/library/car.Rcheck
. . .
C:\rw1021\src\library>c:\rw1021\bin\rcmd install car
make: Entering directory `/rw1021/src/gnuwin32'
make DLLNM= EXTRADOCS= \
. . .
The package in question includes no compiled code.
Any help you might offer would be appreciated.
