[Rd] Building Packages on Windows using .Rbuildignore

I have some questions about building packages in Windows when using .Rbuildignore . The part of the process that is of interest here is the part that creates the source tree from the tree that contains the .Rbuildignore file. That is, the part of the process that does a build of the original tree creating a .tar.gz and then extracts this file into a source directory that can be used by check, build --binary and install.

  1. makefiles

I was developing some batch files for myself using R CMD ... but then noticed the Windows makefiles.

Also I noticed reference to configure.win in the Extensions manual and am not sure if that can be used to address this. I tried creating a one line configure.win which just does an echo of a fixed string "echo XYZ" but I did not see XYZ during my R CMD install.

Thanks.
