[R] Build error on Windows

I'm trying to build R-2.3.1 on windows, but make gives me following error while building pkg-base:
---------- Making package base ------------   adding build stamp to DESCRIPTION

make[4]: *** [frontmatter] Error 1
make[3]: *** [all] Error 2
make[2]: *** [pkg-base] Error 2
make[1]: *** [rpackage] Error 2

make: *** [all] Error 2

Please note that R.exe, Rterm.exe, Rgui.exe, RCmd.exe are build without any errors.

I have three questions, can anyone please help me to resolve it? 1. How to solve (or get more details) of the above mentioned error? 2. When I run Rterm.exe it takes 25-30% CPU time, but doesn't provide me the command prompt, is there anyway to log/trace, to know the issues in Rterm? 3. Despite error mentioned above (Frontmatter) I tried building other packages and was able to build few. But still RGui.exe shows warning saying there is no package called 'datasets', 'utils' etc. Can someone please point me how to resolve this issue?

Thanks in advance.
