You need to manally configure this, *as it says*.

In fact ROracle/inst/README.windows says

   For details on how to compile ROracle under windows see the file    src/Makefile.win -- it pretty much documents requirements, etc.

   To run the Windows binary packge ROracle_<version>.zip    you'll need the client software from Oracle. You must have the    $ORACLE_HOME/bin in your path in order for R to find the Oracle's    runtime libraries.

The path you mention is one of the things ROracle/src/Makefile.win asked you to define!

cl is part of Visual C++ (or the Platform SDK).
