Mark,

I disagree.
This "slimmed-down" file points you to the thorough Chapter "Installing R under Windows" in the "`R Installation and Administration' manual in the doc/manual directory". Quite at the top of Section "Building from source" there is the Subsection "Getting the tools".

I think we do NOT want to point people to Duncan's page at first, or they would not read the more comprehensive manual any more.
