[R] Problems with Rcmd INSTALL on Win32

Hello.  When I try to use Rcmd INSTALL to install a package (whether my
own or someone else's) for the Windows version of R, I get the following

C:\>Rcmd INSTALL cluster_1.8.1.tar.gz

---------- Making package cluster ------------
  adding build stamp to DESCRIPTION
Fatal error: you must specify `--save', `--no-save' or `--vanilla'

make[1]: *** [frontmatter] Error 2
make: *** [pkg-cluster] Error 2
*** Installation of cluster failed ***

So I tried:

C:\>Rcmd INSTALL --no-save cluster_1.8.1.tar.gz

But got the same error.  I do not experience this with R CMD INSTALL
under FreeBSD.

I am running R 1.8.1, perl 5.8.0, gcc 3.2.3, and have tar, make, etc

Would someone point out to me what I am doing wrong?
