I am trying to install RMySql-.0.6.0 to work with WinXP, MySQL 5 and R 2.51. there is no binary for windows on cran-r, so i grabbed RMySql-0.6.0.tar.gz and tried to compile it.

I get the following error: 
* checking for file 'RMySQL/DESCRIPTION' ... OK
* preparing 'RMySQL':
* checking DESCRIPTION meta-information ... 'sh' is not recognized as an internal or external command. 
* cleaning src
* removing junk files

where is it specified to use .sh commands?  i went through the installation instructions and could not find references to it.

also do i need to compile the src/*.c files separately? i assume the rcmd build should take of everything as the individual src/.*c files don't compile without mysql.h and unistd.h.
