Dear R-Helpers,

I am working with Windows XP.
I am trying to build R 2.0.1 from source (R-2.0.1.tar.gz downloaded from CRAN).
I read the R Installation and Administration manual and the README.packages file as well (probably tot carefully enough !).

I installed the recommended tools and software including TCL/TK software (from archive ActiveTcl8. I modified the PATH system variable and created new user variables:


I meet the following error when building R:

CD C:\R-2.0.1\src\gnuwin32
make all bitmapdll recommended vignettes


I checked in the Tcl installation and tcl.h and tk.h are actually in the tcl\include directory.

What did I do wrong, and how to fix it ?

Thanks and best regards,
