I don't think you've solved your problem.

You are obviously not using the R that comes with Cygwin and in addition
some extra stuff that lives in C:\Rtools. And apparently, the latter
comes with their own Cygwin-based tools and gets delivered with their
own cygwin1.dll. Now, If you had read the error message you might have
found where that second cygwin1.dll lives (and likely still lives). The
next time you'll call the tools in whatever order to make that other
(older) cygwin1.dll load first or have the programs in Rtools try to use
the newer cygwin1.dll you will have that very same problem again.
