I spent a bit of time on this yesterday -- Brian is correct as always;
I've done a "little" tinkering, and seem to be about 1/3 of the way
there to successfully compiling; currently I'm fixing a failure in
R.bin, but there is a nasty hack that I did, that I'm not showing
anyone, to get it that far. Don't assume that I'll finish -- vacation
is over for me.

It seems to be (Cygwin / R) a truly weird setup, at least as far as R
is concerned.
