[R] R CMD build creates tar file instead of tar.gz file

I had an identical problem building in R.2.12 with the latest (last week's)

Interestingly I found that if I used a DOS path in rcmd build (eg rcmd build
0.9\pkg) I got a .tar, but if I replaced it with the unix-like path as in

rcmd build 0.9/pkg

I got a .tar.gz

Weird but workable.
