Re-read "Writing R Extensions" for a full description, particularly
"Checking and building packages".  In your case, from the directory 
just above the top-level directory of your package.

Rcmd BUILD --binary yourpackagename

This takes care of a lot of things related to the build; zipping is
only part of it.
