Dear R People:

I'm starting to think that I should just install from the binary, but
here is my latest effort to install from source on a Windows 7 64 bit:

c:\R64\R-patched>cd src
cd src

c:\R64\R-patched\src>cd gnuwin32/
cd gnuwin32/

c:\R64\R-patched\src\gnuwin32>set TMPDIR=c:\temp
set TMPDIR=c:\temp

c:\R64\R-patched\src\gnuwin32>make all recommended
make all recommended
make[1]: `MkRules' is up to date.
make[4]: Nothing to be done for `svnonly'.
installing C headers
make[2]: Nothing to be done for `all'.
make[2]: x86_64-w64-mingw32-dlltool: Command not found
make[2]: *** [libRblas.dll.a] Error 127
make[1]: *** [rbuild] Error 2
make: *** [all] Error 2


I did indeed install R-tools.

This is very strange.

Any suggestions much appreciated.
