Hi, all,

I just recently upgraded my computer though I'm using the same OS (XP). But now I'm having difficulty building packages and I cannot seem to solve the problem. I'm using R-2.1.1pat on Windows XP.

Here is what I tried:

D:\Users\sundard\slib\sundar\R>R CMD CHECK sundar
* checking for working latex ... OK

installing R.css in D:/Users/sundard/slib/sundar/R/sundar.Rcheck

Execution halted
make[2]: *** [nmspace] Error 1
make[1]: *** [all] Error 2
make: *** [pkg-sundar] Error 2
*** Installation of sundar failed ***

Removing 'D:/Users/sundard/slib/sundar/R/sundar.Rcheck/sundar'   ERROR
Installation failed.

I've also tried to remove the NAMESPACE which then passes `check' but fails on `build' with the following:

If this is relevant, here is my PATH:
C:\WINDOWS\system32;
C:\WINDOWS;
.;

D:\R\rw2011pat\bin;
D:\R\tools\bin;
D:\Perl\bin;
D:\Tcl\bin;
D:\TeXLive\bin\win32;
D:\Mingw\bin;
C:\Program Files\Insightful\splus62\cmd;
C:\Program Files\HTML Help Workshop

Here, the D:\R\tools\bin directory contains the utilities for building R from source, downloaded today. Am I missing something obvious?

Thanks,
