>You are obviously not using the R that comes with Cygwin
My R is the Windows version of the program.
I am not sure what you mean by "the R that comes with Cygwin". I do not think that cygwin comes with its own version R installed by default, like it default installs perl. In fact, quickly skimming cygwin's setup-x86.exe list of available packages, I do not see an R in there.

I did not install any extra cygwin tools when I installed Rtools, as I already had a full cygwin installation.
In particular, the Rtools check box option to install the cygwin DLLs was left unchecked.

No, I read that message, and followed its instructions.

I should have mentioned in my original email that when I searched for cygwin1.dll, I found but once instance, the expected one in C:\cygwin\bin.

I followed the recommended advice from Duncan Murdoch: I installed only cygwin 32 bit, and put Rttols before cygwin in my PATH system env var.
