Hi Avraham,

I tried with the patched version. The same error message.

gcc -std=gnu99 -m64 -shared -s -mwindows -o R.dll R.def console.o dynload.o
editor.o embeddedR.o extra.o malloc.o opt.o pager.o preferences.o psignal.o
rhome.o rt_complete.o rui.o run.o shext.o sys-win32.o system.o dos_wglob.o
dllversion.o ../main/libmain.a ../appl/libappl.a ../nmath/libnmath.a
getline/gl.a ../extra/xdr/libxdr.a ../extra/intl/libintl.a

collect2.exe: error: ld returned 1 exit status

make: *** [distribution] Error 2

Would it be possible for you to share your MkRules.local and Makefile.win

Also as per your website, we don't need the line:


in the file *Makeconf *inside *R_HOME/src/gnuwin32/fixed/etc*. Hence I am
commenting it. Also I noticed, just above this line (line 60), the
following line which specifies Rgraphapp:

*GRAPHAPP_LIB = -lRgraphapp*
# was a reference to Rzlib.dll in R < 3.2.0

This looks like the step which is causing the error. Anything I can try out
at this point?
