D:\mtmorgan\src\R-devel>bin\R CMD config CC

make: /bin/sh: Command not found

D:\mtmorgan\src\R-devel>bin\R CMD config CC

This is on a system where cygwin and Rtools (from your installer) are under c:/usr (rather than the more usual location for cygwin directly under c:/). The system has seen many cooks over the years, and there could well be a misconfiguration somewhere else. PATH (e.g., to make, sh, ar) seem to point to the right location, versions seem to be correct, and changing SHELL to sh remedies the situation.

Thanks,

Martin
