The error message is about as clear as it can get:
| install.packages("RQuantLib")
| Warning in install.packages("RQuantLib") :
|   argument 'lib' is missing: using

There is your answer: there simply is no binary package.

I need a win64 development box (which I currently do not have) to build
QuantLib as a win64 library so that CRAN and R-Forge can turn the RQuantLib
source into a binary for you.
