No, do this from a DOS shell. The usual problems are either missing components from the installation steps outlined in Building R for Windows, or an incorrect PATH variable so that windows or cygwin versions of programs are used rather than MinGW / Rtools.

Also, this question belongs on the R-devel list, where those doing development work are more likely to see and respond to your questions.

Hope that helps,
