I have just got a new machine and had a basic cygwin installed before it was given to me. It didn't include make. Previously I have installed Rtools to build packages and now I have got myself a bit confused as to whether to just install make from the cygwin packages or to install rtools. I would welcome any advice. I had a look at the rtools section in the Administration Manual and the rtools site without gaining sufficient enlightenment to proceed.

I am running Windows Vista and R 2.6.2
