i)  Yes. Absolutely. And don;t stop there.

    I just update a bunch of machines at work to 15.10.

ii) Your compilation error __makes no sense whatsoever__ as Rcpp gets rebuilt
    on many different Debian, Ubuntu and whatnot flavours. I could now load a
    plain Docker 12.04 container and built it.

So I suspect we need to consider that you may have done something else to
your local setup as the _really_ does work for thousands of other users. On
various system combinations.  But until you come up with something
reproducible I cannot help you.
