The GPL gives you permission to modify R and redistribute, as long as you leave the GPL license intact and make the source code of what you distribute available. (But I'm neither a lawyer nor the copyright holder for all of R, so don't trust me, read the license).

The iss file for R is produced by the Perl script in src/gnuwin32/installer, after the Makefile in the same directory has copied an image of R to a temporary directory. If you just want the script, you can run

make R.iss

in that directory (assuming you've already made all the constituent parts). I'd recommend not editing this file, however: you're better off trying to make all your changes to src/gnuwin32/MkRules or one of the Makefiles if you don't want to go through all the work again as soon as you've incorporated the next R patch.
