I am on a Windows 7 platform and I got all of the tools and successfully built 'R' from source. I changed to gnuwin32 and entered make all recommended. Even though the tar.gz (source) version of Hmisc has been downloaded and placed in library/recommended folder the build process doesn't seem to pick it up. What do I need to do to build this from source? Right now whenever I start R I get the error:

Hmsic is not among the recommended packages that are shiped with R, 
hence you cannot install it that way.
See the manual "R Installation and Administration" how to do it.

My forecast is that a binary of a fixed Hmisc will be available next week.
