Dear R users,
I would need some help in building R using minGW in windows 8.1. After
using the command *configure *(./configure --enable-R-shlib
--with-readline=no --with-x=no), I use the command *make. *This results in
the following error:

make[2]: Leaving directory `/home/Edoardo/r-3.1.2/src/nmath'
make[2]: Entering directory `/home/Edoardo/r-3.1.2/src/unix'

I am not an expert programmer and would appreciate some help. My final
objective is to install R as shared library in order to use RHIPE.
