I am wondering if anybody has successfully installed RcppArmadillo version using Cygwin on Windows 8 and R 3.0.2.

I can install the package inside R version 3.0.2, but when I try to 
install the package from source thru Cygwin, it complained about a missing 
header file  "RcppArmadilloLapack.h"

Here is the detailed error message:

$ R CMD INSTALL RcppArmadillo_0.4.000.2.tar.gz

../inst/include/RcppArmadilloConfig.h:83:35: fatal error: 
RcppArmadilloLapack.h: No such file or directory
    #include <RcppArmadilloLapack.h>

Any pointers would be greatly appreciated.
