I have put your name and email into the Maintainer of the package. I submitted the package to Win-Builder just now.

My pleasure. You did well here.

| I have been trying to look at the R package fftw developed by Olaf and Uwe over the last few days. And I have tried to make use of the configure.ac. file in their source package to generate the configure script. I tried R CMD Check on my Mac, as well as on some machines running Linux. It seems that I could pass all the R CMD Checks on these Unix / Linux machines.

Great!  [ Configure/autoconf are hated by many but it is really just a shell
scripting variant.  I don't mind it as much.  And great when it works. ]

| Also, I have come across the following website https://cran.r-project.org/bin/windows/contrib/ThirdPartySoftware.html, on which it seems to suggest that the C library fftw3 (with the make variable LIB_FFTW) is installed on the CRAN build machine for Windows.

| So, I tried the following Makevars.win.
| CXX11 = g++
| PKG_CXXFLAGS = -std=c++11
| PKG_LIBS = -L$(LIB_FFTW)/lib${R_ARCH} -lfftw3

That looks correct to me (assuming LIB_FFTW is the chosen name). I do
something similar with my packages linking to the GNU GSL.

| However, when I tried to re-submit the package to CRAN, I still got the same error message on the pre-test as follows, suggesting that the machine had not detected the fftw3 library.

That looks like it expanded right.

What I would do now is take one of the working packages, create a local
tarball _and put my name and email into Maintainer_ because that way the
win-builder test log will come back to me.  And then submit, and compare.

And I presume this works locally for you, ie these symbols are in fact in the
DLL you try to use?

| I was wondering whether I should include in the configure.ac file a few lines about downloading the library fftw3 when it is not available on the machine? Or have I made some mistakes in the Makevars.win file?

You could -- but if it works on *nix you can leave it alone.

| Thank you very much and I apologize for any inconvenience I may have caused you.

You are using the mailing list for the very purpose it was created for so no
apology needed or accepted!

Cheers, Dirk
