I am having no luck compiling R-2.0.1 on a Windows XP platform. I have not had these problems when compliling previous versions of R.

I've installed all the recommended software and tools. But I cannot get round this error message:

make[1]: `Rpwd.exe' is up to date.
make -f Makefile.docfiles
make[3]: Nothing to be done for `docfiles'.
-------- Building ../../../library/base/R/Rprofile from ../../library/profile/Common.R ../../library/profile/Rprofile.windows--------
mkdir -p ../../../library/base/R
cat: not found
make[3]: *** [../../../library/base/R/Rprofile] Error 127
make[2]: *** [fixfiles] Error 2
make[1]: *** [rbuild] Error 2
make: *** [all] Error 2

Can anybody suggest a solution?
