[Rcpp-devel] RcppArmadillo and Rdefines

To close this point on the use of Rdefines.h on the list it was my
oversight to include all the R header files.  I have now removed them.  I
initially only retained those headers as the initial package contained
them.  I was unaware that Rcpp includes the necessary components and I can
use the Rf_ prefix.  The problem has now been solved as I use the Rf_
prefix and define R_NO_REMAP.
