You should be able to. Instructions are in the README.packages file in R_HOME/src/gnuwin32. I don't know if you've got that file if you installed a pre-built R, but it's in the source tarball (and in https://svn.r-project.org/R. Choose a tag subdirectory for a release version, or the trunk for the latest and greatest. You'll probably get the same instructions on all recent ones, they don't change much.
