Dear R-help,

I was able to build R-1.5.0 on WinNT w/o problem (actually it seems easier
than previous version).  However, I encountered problem when trying to
compile the recommended package foreign:

make: Entering directory `/cygdrive/g/rbuild/R-1.5.0/src/gnuwin32'
make DLLNM=  FLIBS="-lg2c -lRblas" BUILD=MINGW \
  -C G:/Rbuild/R-1.5.0-recommended/R.INSTALL/foreign PKG=foreign
/R-1.5.0 RLIB=g:/rbuild/R-1.5.0/library \
  -f g:/rbuild/R-1.5.0/src/gnuwin32/MakePkg
make[1]: Entering directory
---------- Making package foreign ------------
configure.win: not found
make[1]: *** [g:/rbuild/R-1.5.0/library/foreign/zzzz] Error 127
make[1]: Leaving directory
make: *** [pkg-foreign] Error 2
make: Leaving directory `/cygdrive/g/rbuild/R-1.5.0/src/gnuwin32'
*** Installation of foreign failed ***

Does anyone have any idea what's wrong?  configure.win is there, and all it
does is copying two files in src from .h.in to .h.
