I've successfully compiled it (with ActiveTcl too!) on Windows.  The
file size is ~ 21MB.

I didn't realise it was R 1.6.1 beta at first.  I was using rsync to get
r-patched on my 1.6.0,   Then after compilation/installation I realised it
is in fact 1.6.1 Beta.  I'm assuming one can rsync it?  The command I used
   rsync -aC rsync.r-project.org::r-patched ./R-patched
