Thank you for the help.

My g++ compiler can't handle the -lgfortran switch, while gcc can. I
think it is the fault of my Linux distribution (http://nixos.org), but
it was an easier solution to use gcc instead of g++ than fixing g++.
This probably means that I can't compile any R packages using C++ and
fortran at the same time. I will investigate further in this error.

This was the error:
g++ -shared -L/usr/local/lib -o Matrix.so CHMfactor.o Csparse.o
