I don't know what that error would be, but you don't really need to go
that far.  By that point you're building the installer; if you're
doing a build for yourself, you only need to go as far as "docs" in
the list of targets in the src/gnuwin32/INSTALL file.  

If I were going to guess at the reason, I'd guess you have a different
version of find in your path ahead of the R tools one (mine gives
English error messages), or you have something on your system that
makes it think it's talking Spanish, so perhaps "-name", "-prune" and
"-exec" need to be translated too.
