[R] cross-compiling for windows with linux

Dear List,

I am (still) trying to use the makefile advertised in R-News
(the Makefile is a wrapper around other tools).
When I try to build a package using the (fairly recent)
'install.R' mecanism, the output leaves me not so confident
about the the usability of the pack built for Windows
(I am currently unable to verify it):

---------- Making package splicegear ------------
  installing inst files
  adding build stamp to DESCRIPTION
  installing R files
  save image
/home/laurent/these/R/RCrossBuild/WinR/R-1.7.1/src/gnuwin32/install-save.sh: line 23: /home/laurent/these/R/RCrossBuild/WinR/R-1.7.1/bin/Rterm: No such file or directory
/home/laurent/these/R/RCrossBuild/WinR/R-1.7.1/src/gnuwin32/install-save.sh: line 34:  5846 Broken pipe             cat ${lib}/${pkg}/R/${pkg}
Execution of package source for splicegear failed
mv: cannot stat `.RData': No such file or directory

Changing 'Rterm' by 'Rtem.exe' in 'install-save.sh' do not appear to fix
the problem (the error message changes to 'cannot execute').

Any pointer would be appreciated.
