Find rtools.

To build binary packages on windows, Rtools (found at https://cran.r-project.org/bin/windows/Rtools/) needs to be on the path. The default installation process does not add it, so this script finds it (looking first on the path, then in the registry). It also checks that the version of rtools matches the version of R.
