If you don't understand the output, why do you think it is a bug?
The question seems to belong to R-Help, not to R-Bugs.

Two solutions:
a) use slashes "/" instead of backslashes "\" in the path:
      Rcmd INSTALL C:/R/lattice_0.4-0.tar.gz

b) cd to "C:/R" and type "Rcmd INSTALL lattice_0.4-0.tar.gz"
