[R] missing sh.exe file when running "R CMD INSTALL test"

I am trying to learn how to make a simple package that contains no C or Fortran code. I used package.skeleton(...) to make a package called "test". The directory and files look good. I downloaded and installed Rtools (www.murdoch-sutherland.com/Rtools/tools.zip). I added the path and from the dos prompt I can verify that make.exe and sh.exe both exist, but when I try to run "R CMD INSTALL test" I get an error "make: sh.exe: Command not found" and "make: *** [pkg-test] Error 127". I get the same error message if a try the command "make pkg-test".

I saw in an old FAQ a suggestion to move sh.eve to the C:\bin\ folder, but my C: root does not have a "bin" folder. Nonetheless, I created one and put sh.exe there and it provided no help (I didn't expect it too).

Can anyone help me?
