Hello, Indrajit.

I don't see your MkRules.local attached. In any event, perhaps try
following the directions here [1]. I've been building R with OpenBLAS
on Windows 64 for years and it almost always works. In the past year
or two, rarely, it will stop with an error. But if you restart the
make process (by just typing "make" again) it finishes with no issues
and passes make check-devel. I have not tried this with R-dev, though.
R 3.4.3 Patched (2018-01-03 r74042) is the most recent I have built

Good luck,
