On Windows if you use Rcmd.bat from http://batchfiles.googlecode.com
to do your builds and installs then you don't have to set any
environment variables for R.   Its a self contained batch file that
automatically finds what it needs using the registry where possible
and assuming standard locations otherwise.  Just use Rcmd.bat in place
of Rcmd.exe .
