I am trying to make my own package in Windows XP with R 1.9.1. using 
Rcmd build/ Rcmd.

The initial Rcmd build compiles ok with no error messages. However, when 
I run Rcmd check it runs ok up until

* checking for file 'GammaTest/DESCRIPTION' ... OK
* checking if this is a source package ... OK
* checking whether package 'GammaTest' can be installed ... ERROR
Installation failed.
See 'c:/Documents and Settings/Samuel Kemp/My Documents/R 
Files/GammaTest.Rcheck/00install.out' for details.

This file contains the following.....

installing R.css in c:/DOCUME~1/SAMUEL~1/MYDOCU~1/RFILES~1/GAMMAT~1.RCH

---------- Making package GammaTest ------------
  adding build stamp to DESCRIPTION
make[2]: *** No rule to make target `R/Create', needed by 
make[1]: *** [all] Error 2
make: *** [pkg-GammaTest] Error 2
*** Installation of GammaTest failed ***

Can anyone shed light on what it is trying to tell me?
