As AFAICT that is what our documentation says all along too :)

We currently use 

  ## make sure system.file returns an absolute path
  Rcpp.system.file <- function(...){
      tools:::file_path_as_absolute( base:::system.file( ..., package = "Rcpp" ) )

Does this have an option on Windows to reliably generate 8.3 names, eg


instead of 

    C:/Programs and Documents/R/R-2.13.1 

which we could use?


Two new Rcpp master classes for R and C++ integration scheduled for 
New York (Sep 24) and San Francisco (Oct 8), more details are at
