Try looking at the R for Windows FAQ or the Venables & Ripley R

Basically, to make package foo under Windows, set a standard R packages
source (with R, src, man and data) in ...\rw0642\src\library\foo, cd to 
..\rw0642\src\gnuwin32 and `make pkg-foo'.  You are very unlikely to need
a Makefile (under Windows or Unix).
