Well it's not so much an issue of AppArmor, more of using g++ with an
process-specific TMPDIR, which I guess hasn't been tested a lot. I can
easily work around the problem by relaxing the sandbox a bit and allowing
g++ to create files under /tmp. I've done that on the server, and now all
Rcpp packages build fine. However it would be more elegant if g++ would
just inherit TMPDIR from the R process (and I am convinced it was doing
that before). Anyway things are working again:
