First principles then.  Add a new target 'testThis' at the top of the
Makefile.win and make it

		C:/Program Files/R/R-2.12.2/bin/R --version


		C:/Program Files/R/R-2.12.2/bin/R.exe --version

If you have R.exe in that location, and your $PATH is correct, then this
should query R for its version.

If that works, adapt the rest of the Makefile accordingly.  If that doesn't
work then I am not quite sure what else to suggest.
