[R] Armadillo error in R extension

Is there anyway with some experience in using armadillo in R C++ extensions?

My problem is the following:

I programmed a function in a header looking like

#include <armadillo>

inline arma::vec foo(input) {

	... do something
	return an arma::vec object 

compiling this via R CMD INSTALL packagename (PKG_CXXFLAGS = -I/folder/of/armadillo and armadillo_bits in my package)

I get the following error 

"error: expected initializer before 'foo' "

The exact line and word is where inline arma::vec ends.

Does anyone know what this error could be?
