I am trying to build an R package for Windows from an R package
for Linux. There seems to be a "windres" problem somewhere.
Here's what I get. 

C:\Temp>Rcmd build --binary VGAM > mm
make[2]: windres: Command not found
make[2]: *** [VGAM_res.o] Error 127
make[1]: *** [src/VGAM.dll] Error 2
make: *** [pkg-VGAM] Error 2

In more details, it goes like the following. 

C:\Temp>Rcmd build --binary VGAM
* checking for file 'VGAM/DESCRIPTION' ... OK

make: Entering directory `/cygdrive/c/PROGRA~1/R/rw1051/src/gnuwin32'

Could somebody please tell me what's gone wrong? What software has to be
installed or reinstalled? The above is using R1.5.1 under Windows 2000 Professional. 
The VGAM library contains FORTRAN and C.
Thanks in advance
