Re: [R] builiding R from sources

Please tell us which version of R.

If this is 2.2.0 (I think it is) you need to review the tools you are using, as mingw-runtime-3.8 is required. (It says so explicitly in that manual, and that is the current version of that package.)

For R-patched you will also need a recent enough version of binutils (the ones mentioned in those places are recent enough).

NB: Dr Goto's BLAS is no longer available for Windows, and it seems it is not going to be in future. For Linux it is now available for academic use only.

That is just a warning, I think.
