Not 1. Rd1? Bg3+ 2. Ke2 Bd6 3. Rd2 Be7. Instead castling long is the key gaining a tempo with the continuation 1.. Bd6 2. Kb1 Be7 3. Rd7 4. Rd8#. Castling is legal (by convention) because the position is (obviously---otherwise it would be a retro problem) reachable in a game in which wRa1 and wKe1 did not move.
