[R] Can neither find or create RInterpreter.DLL

I am doing my first steps with R. This worked so far:
- Installed R1.5.1 from binary distribution
- Installed SJava 0.62.8 from binary distribution
- Executed Java statements within R

If I call R from Java, I get an UnsatisfiedLinkError:
RInterpreter.DLL not found. This DLL is completely
missing, I searched all drives for it.

In "Calling R from Java" I found a hint: "...you will
need to have built R as a shared library. You can
do this by passing the argument --enable-shared
to the configure script..."

Ok, I downloaded the source of R1.5.1 and run the

$ sh configure --enable-shared
uname: not found
chmod: not found
configure: error: cannot create configure.lineno; rerun with a POSIX

Although this error occurred, make runs fine and creates Rgui.EXE,
but no RInterpreter.DLL.

I installed all the tools recommended in
- Tools.ZIP http://www.stats.ox.ac.uk/pub/Rtools/tools.zip
- Perl http://www.activestate.com/Products/ActivePerl/Download.html
- MINGW compiler http://www.mingw.org/

Any help is highly appreciated.
