Please adapt your BINPREF variable in R/etc/$Arch/Makeconf files 
appropriately to point to the coresponding compiler for each 
architecture - this is new with the new toolchain we use with R >= 3.3.0.

And "d:\Rtools\bin;" and "d:\Rtools\mingw_64\bin;" are all in PATH. I also checked gcc command under command window, and it is working. But when I am installing the package, it always trying to use "c:/Rtools/mingw_64/bin/gcc", which should be in d: disk, then it gives "c:/Rtools/mingw_64/bin/gcc: not found" error. Can anyone help on this issue?
