Tony,

sorry, but your answer is too easy:

Obviously, Lars Schouw has not *exactly* followed the instructions on how to install contributed source packages. If he has done so, he should at first try with a "simple" package, e.g. one that has a binary on CRAN.

BUT: Lars has to modify rpvm quite extensively in order to get it compiled for Windows (in particular - at least! - Makevars.win). And you as one of the authors are now asked to give some hints how to proceed.
