If you would like to draft a detailed section on building packages
under windows, that would be great.  Once you're done, please email it
to me (as I'm currently the Windows maintainer); I'll put it (or
something based on it) into R-exts or elsewhere as appropriate.

By the way, once all the tools are set up properly, the easiest way to
build a .zip of your package is

  Rcmd build --binary sourcedir

The --use-zip options have to do with compressing files within the
installation, not compressing the whole installation.
