Dear R Development People:  

I was trying to build R-2.12.2 from source on a Windows XP machine.  

Doing the make all recommended works fine, but building the bitmap dll is a problem.  

It seems to be in the libpng directory. I got libpng-1.5.1, and untarred it. However, there is no makefile.mingw file in the scripts directory.  

I then obtained a version of libpng-1.4.5, and the file is there. The dll file builds fine.  

We might want to look at the libpng-1.5.1 directory.  

Thanks for listening,
