Can't rsync extsoft/3.6 when compiling R 3.6

Shuguang Sun
Hi all,

When I try to compile R 3.6 in windows 10 in Rtools35, it raised the error message:
--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
make rsync-extsoft
(mkdir -p ../../extsoft; \
cd ../../extsoft; \
rsync --timeout=60 -rcvp --delete cran.r-project.org::CRAN/bin/windows/extsoft/3.6/ . )
receiving incremental file list
rsync: change_dir "/bin/windows/extsoft/3.6" (in CRAN) failed: No such file or directory (2)
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

There is no "windows/extsoft/3.6/" and only up to 3.5.

Best Regards,
Shuguang Sun

Indeed.
If you look at this FTP directory in a capabable browser (such
as Emacs), you see

    Dec 22 2014  3.2
    Jun 16 2016  3.3
    Jul  6 2016  3.4 -> 3.3
    May  8 2017  3.5 -> 3.3

So it seems the CRAN team (or the R Core release master?) forgot
to make that symbolic link there.

As workaround get the 3.5 version and "call it" 3.6.

Best,

I think that might be my responsibility (not entirely sure honestly).
I'll add that directory and include the current versions of the libs
we use to build the official r-base on Windows.
