Hi All,

I am trying to build a couple of packages from source, one of my own and
others. I have had this working under R1.5.0, now trying to set up on a new
machine under R1.6.0. Starting from various places, I am getting an error in
MkRules that I do not understand. 

C:\PROGRA~1\R\rw1060\src\gnuwin32>make libR.a libRblas.a
MkRules:91: *** missing separator.  Stop.

The example is from the text in readme.packages. I get the same error on
everything I've tried.

The only thing I can think of that I have done differently is to edit the
path variables in MkRules to point to all the locations they are supposed to
point to. I've checked all these and they are correct. The tools, ming-w
compiler, and perl are installed and in the path. Any pointers as to how to
identify where the problem lies gratefully received.
