Follow the instructions in 'R Installation and Administration' for
building source packages on Windows.

I don't know if SJava is currently buildable on Windows, not least because 
it requires an out-of-date Java (it objects to Java 6 aka 1.6.0), at least 
on Linux (and on x86_64 Linux no earlier Java is viable).
