[R] Installing on Windows packages build on Unix

I wanted to share with a colleague a few R functions that I wrote. To
this purpose, I created a small package on my machine (Unix) and
emailed it to her. Now she is having troubles installing the package
on her Windows machine. It seems that on her side, install.packages
looks for a "zip" file - while I have created a "tar.gz" file. I tried
to build the package with the --use-zip options but that didn't work. 

Any suggestions?
