I installed the MinGW-5.0.0 compilers today (gcc-3.4.2 is now contained in the 'Current' distribution. When the current compilers failed to compile the referenced Matrix update and not knowing how to check the exact version numbers for individual files, I applied the Id.exe and f771.exe fixes from the 'Building R for Windows' page (http://www.murdoch-sutherland.com/Rtools/#ldbug). More compiler errors were obtained. I then checked my Pearl version (5.8.7) and updated my R tools since I couldn't tell how old they were. At that point, I obtained the following output:

C:\Documents and Settings\Whitece.AMED\My Documents\1 Pocket Office\R Repository \lme4>rcmd install matrix_0.995-5.tar.gz

latex: not found

Removing 'C:/PROGRA~1/R/R-22~1.1/library/matrix' Restoring previous 'C:/PROGRA~1/R/R-22~1.1/library/matrix'

If I need to read one of R's many friendly manuals, I'd appreciate a reference to which one and approximately which section.
