actually what I really want is to build the entire R source using Visual 
Studio. I know the current supported way is to use MinGW to build R on 
But since there is no 64-bit MinGW, I thought I'll experimenting with 
Visual Studio on 64-bit Windows.
If anyone has success in building R with Visual Studio on 32-bit 
platform, please shed some light on this. Thanks!
