I've tried building R in Windows and had trouble compiling Bitmap.dll 
(make bitmapdll) and the docs (make docs). See make output below:

E:\R\R-1.9.1\src\gnuwin32>make bitmapdll
make -C bitmap
make[1]: Entering directory `/cygdrive/e/R/R-1.9.1/src/gnuwin32/bitmap'
make[3]: `libz.a' is up to date.
make[3]: scripts/makefile.std: No such file or directory
make[3]: *** No rule to make target `scripts/makefile.std'.  Stop.
make[2]: *** [buildpng] Error 2
make[1]: *** [all] Error 2
make[1]: Leaving directory `/cygdrive/e/R/R-1.9.1/src/gnuwin32/bitmap'
make: *** [bitmapdll] Error 2

I couldn't find 'scripts/makefile.std' anywhere. These are the files in 

jpeg-6b (folder)
libpng  (folder)

For the 'make docs' part, what I got was lots of:

docs/README says that it is necessary to set a certain pool_size var to 
500000, but I was not able to find any conf file
with that var. By the way, I'm using fptex (default install).

Any help would be great.
