Are you saying that it is given incorrectly?  I can't see it.
That site is for the development of R, not for users building R, so it 
does not seem appropriate to link from there.

It _is_ in the R-admin manual, the place building R for Windows is 
discussed (as from 2.1.0).  Apart from in that manual I am unaware of it 
being on the main R web sites.
