[R] Fwd: cygwin1.dll problems when installing packages from source

Hi all,
I would just like to add that I have installed R3.4.0patched and again run
the same commands. This does not help. I get essentially the same error
message. It is just a lot more longer with multiple repetitions of
essentially the following :

c:/Rtools/mingw_32/bin/g++  -std=gnu++11 -I"C:/R/R-34~1.0PA/include"
 -I. -I../inst/include -IBmath -Imath/cephes -DNO_BOOST_THREADS
-I"d:/Compiler/gcc-4.9.3/local330/include"     -O2 -Wall  -mtune=core2
-c distributions/matrix_normal.cpp -o distributions/matrix_normal.o
      0 [main] make (5544) c:\Rtools\bin\make.exe: *** fatal error -
cygheap base mismatch detected - 0xBF7408/0xE17408.
This problem is probably due to using incompatible versions of the cygwin DLL.
Search for cygwin1.dll using the Windows Start->Find/Search facility
and delete all but the most recent version.  The most recent version *should*
reside in x:\cygwin\bin, where 'x' is the drive on which you have
installed the cygwin distribution.  Rebooting is also suggested if you
are unable to find another cygwin DLL.
 753152 [main] make 3132 fork: child -1 - forked process 5544 died
unexpectedly, retry 0, exit code 0xC0000142, errno 11
make: vfork: Resource temporarily unavailable
c:/Rtools/mingw_32/bin/g++  -std=gnu++11 -I"C:/R/R-34~1.0PA/include"
 -I. -I../inst/include -IBmath -Imath/cephes -DNO_BOOST_THREADS

I would appreciate all help with troubleshooting.
