Hi,

Thanks, after I emailed the help list I figured I should try building R
since then I would have a kit that should be able to build packages
properly. I immediately realized, as you both pointed out, that I needed a
MinGW GCC; I was using Cygwin's compiler.

I downloaded the ash source and got it to compile properly.

Thanks for the information,

James
