I'm trying to compile R 2.0.0 on windows using cygwin. The program itself
compiled fine (I added -mno-cygwin to compilation/linkage rules so that mingw
runtime is used), but the build process fails to make packages. Here are the
error messages:


  making bootstrap versions of packages ...
  ... done

writing help indices for package: base tools utils grDevices graphics stats data
sets methods grid splines stats4 tcltk

---------- Making package base ------------
  adding build stamp to DESCRIPTION
Error in library.dynam(lib, package, package.lib) :
        shared library 'tools' not found
Execution halted
make[4]: *** [frontmatter] Error 1
make[3]: *** [all] Error 2
make[2]: *** [pkg-base] Error 2
make[1]: *** [rpackage] Error 2
make: *** [all] Error 2


Can anybody help ? Any ideas on what can go wrong are welcome.

 							With regards, Roman.
