It is a good sign. Your Rtools43 installation is working, but R for
some reason doesn't know about it.

What is the value of Sys.getenv('PATH'), Sys.which('make'),
Sys.which('gcc') inside a running R session? Presumably, if PATH
starts with something like


...then both Make and the compiler should be available to R. If it
doesn't, it's worth trying to prepend it there.

Best regards,
