I am new to R. I need to communicate with Oracle from R program in windows xp. So I am planning to use ROracle. I downloaded the ROracle src from the site below:


I am using R version 2.6.2 and Oracle 10g. I followed the instructions to build ROracle. When I try to compile the source src/Makefile.win I get the following error:

      NMAKE : fatal error U1073: don't know how to make 'c:\\PROGRA~1\\R\\R-2.6.2\\src\\gnuwin32\\Rdll.lib'

I could figure out what is the purpose of 'Rdll.lib' and where am I supposed to get it from. I do not see that file in the gnuwin32 directory. How would I create the file ? I am stuck now. Can you suggest me what should I do to get ROracle to compile in R 2.6.2 with Oracle 10g ?
