I figured I'd write up what worked and post it on Rcpp list in case someone else has similar problems:

Awesome -- thank you very much!

I am hearing through the gravevine that CRAN is also working on getting C++11
sorted out; updating the Windows toolchain is apparently one of the issues.

One minor comment: as a 'does it work yet?' test, we often suggest using the
Rcpp Attributes function evalCpp().  So after setting everything up, and
having loaded the Rcpp package, try something like 

       evalCpp("2 * M_PI")


or even just 


Cheers, Dirk
