Hi everyone,

I’m a Windows XP user. I’m trying to install R-2.1.1 from source, and it doesn’t work. Here’s what I have done:

I open a CMD terminal window, and run make. I got the error message that we can see at the bottom of this terminal window. I then thought it was MiKTeX that was not well installed. I did it again, and reran the make. Here’s what I got:

C:\Rsource\R-2.1.1\src\gnuwin32>make
make[1]: `Rpwd.exe' is up to date.
make -f Makefile.docfiles

I can’t get ride of this error. I don’t know where it is coming from or what to do about it. Any help would be really appreciated. Thank you for your precious time,
