[R] Bbuilding R on Win2K

Dear all,

I wonder if anyone can help with this challenge. I have recently downloaded
the R source (R-1.3.0.zip) and its associated buildtools. I have read the
INSTALL and other related docs. I have modified Makefile (turned of building
help) and set the BUILD=CYGWIN in MkRules (I believe the documentation
indicated that these were the variety bundled in the tools.zip file)

However, when I run make, this is what I get

mkdir -p ../../bin
make -C ./fixed
make[1]: Entering directory `F:/R-1.3.0/src/gnuwin32/fixed'
sed -e '/^#/d' -e '/Rsockfork/d' -e 's/F77_SUBROUTINE(\(.*\))/  { "\1_",
\1_},/' -e 's/C_FUNCTION(\(.*\))/{ "\1",        \1 },/' ../../appl/ROU
TINES > ../FFTab.h
\1_\",: unexpected EOF while looking for `''
\1_\",: -c: line 2: syntax error
make[1]: *** [../FFTab.h] Error 2
make[1]: Leaving directory `F:/R-1.3.0/src/gnuwin32/fixed'
make: *** [fixfiles] Error 2

I have a windows port of Perl (details below)
    This is perl, version 5.005_03 built for MSWin32-x86

I would be very grateful to any one who could point out what's going wrong,
and what can be done to correct this issue.

Thanks in advance

PS :

The OS is Windows 2000 (Version 5.00.21950.)
