[Rcpp-devel] RInside missing R.dll

Sorry to mislead. My RInside attempts were with Windows binaries and
package freshly downloaded from CRAN (into a directory without spaces
in the names, as RInside's make had problems with the space in
Windows' "Program Files" -- even after I had forced the name to
Progra~1 it still could not find files in "Files/". :-)). Dirk's
suggestion that something may be wrong with my setup made me think
that the problem may be in my Rtools setup rather than my R & RInside
setup. After my real job today/tomorrow/this week maybe I'll find time
to investigate the different options: Rtools,
win-builder.r-project.org, ...
Thanks, guys!
