I have been trying to install the Rsubread package with no success for some reason (

This is the output of the first option I tried:

Bioconductor version 3.0 (BiocInstaller 1.16.1), ?biocLite for help

Using Bioconductor version 3.0 (BiocInstaller 1.16.1), R version 3.1.2.
Installing package(s) 'Rsubread'

   package ‘Rsubread’ is available as a source package but not as a binary

Warning messages:
1: package ‘Rsubread’ is not available (for R version 3.1.2) 
2: installed directory not writable, cannot update packages 'boot', 'class', 'cluster',
  'codetools', 'foreign', 'KernSmooth', 'lattice', 'MASS', 'Matrix', 'mgcv', 'nlme', 'nnet',
  'rpart', 'spatial', 'survival' 

First I thought that Rsubread would not work with the most current version of R so I installed two previous versions (3.0 and even back to 2.1) and the same happened to them. 

Then I tried installing by downloading the source package and the following messages show:

* installing *source* package 'Rsubread' ...

   WARNING: this package has a configure script
         It probably needs manual configuration

Any ideas on how to proceed?  

Here is some general info in case it helps:

FYI, I suspect you'll get faster help with this problem on the bioconductor support site, given how few people here use R on windows.
