Trying again with a minimal example. When I run the following batch file under
Windows 2000, R 2.6.0, I get the error message below. Rtools are installed and
at the front of the path.

rem Begin test package; File test.cmd
rem Check the following line for line breaks; ends with --slave
echo f= function(x,y) x+y; package.skeleton(list="f","test") | rterm --vanilla
rcmd build test
rcmd check test
rem End test package
