[Rd] R Compilation gets stuck on Windows 64

Hi All,

I am trying to compile R from source on a 64 bit Windows. I have downloaded
and installed all the third party software as per the R - documentation.
The compilation starts fine and after a while it stops with the following
error message:

cannot find -lRgraphapp
collect2.exe: error: ld returned 1 exit status
make[3]: *** [R.dll] Error 1
make[2]: *** [../../bin/x64/R.dll] Error 2
make[1]: *** [rbuild] Error 2
make: *** [all] Error 2

The file Rgraphapp.dll is created in the folder *D:\R64\R-3.4.3\bin\x64*
but somehow the process is not able to find it and gives an error. The
purpose for going through this process was to compile R with OpenBlas which
I had compiled earlier with MinGW and had created the file:
*libopenblas_haswell-r0.2.20.a. *

I have attached the MkRules.local and the output log along with this email.
Any would be greatly appreciated.
