This requires building R from the source. There are a lot of things that 
can go wrong if you don't have the right tools. A much easier method for 
making R.exp is documented in the   RcppTemplate  package. I think the 
manual should refer to the   RcppTemplate  package for building DLL's 
with other compilers than Gnu.
