[tlocoh-info] gpclib under R 3.0.2 (Win7-64)

Hi Duncan,

gpclib is definitely one of the more problematic packages to install 
because there is no binary for Windows. I've always been able to install 
gpclib from source on Windows, but you also need to have RTools 
installed and added to the path (which is not obvious). I just updated 
the manual installation 
<http://tlocoh.r-forge.r-project.org/manual_install.html> page with some 
additional instructions on doing this and a link to RTools.

Also gpclib is only a suggested package for T-LoCoH, not required, 
because it is only called on when the polygon union function from the 
rgeos package fails (which is rare but does happen). So you can also 
probably get away without installing it at all.

Hope this helps.

I can't seem to get gpclib 1.5-3 or 1.5-1 to install from source on my Windows machine under R 3.0.2 and tloco-h doesn't want to run
under R 2.15.1. Is there a workaround for this situation, since gpclib doesn't seem to be under active development, or do I need to
step up my purchase of a macbook? ;-)
