With the caveat that I am not expert on RHEL/CentOS and tend to share the
general view of most developers that these seem to be a systems ... made for
administrators first, rather than developers.
I did for a while work on such a system but it also had a set of 'red hat
developer tools' (I may have the name wrong) to get a recent compiler into
/opt. You need to make sure you also have the full C++ libraries etc along
Rcpp has no special needs besides a sane setup. It has been on CRAN for 12+
years, and built with every then-current g++ or clang++ version so there is
no constraint coming from our side. We think it still builds with versions
as old as g++ 4.9.*, possibly older. But the setup needs to be right.
Your best source of help may be a RHEL/CentOS/Fedora expert. Some are here,
you may find more at r-sig-fedora.
If/when a "teachable moment" comes out of this, please report back. We can
always add something to the Rcpp FAQ.
