[Rd] Problem with WARNING...headers with CRLF line endings

Dear Herve,

I have just tested the modification of Makefile.win:

	rm -f $(MYOBJ) *.a *.d *.rc xpsLinkDef.h

and it was sufficient to eliminate the warning message.
Thus R CMD check seems indeed to run the clean step.

I have just uploaded the new version to BioC2.7.

Best regards
