In general,you can't.
Rcpp is for R extensions, i.e. dynamically loadable modules you load from R.
Now, you could --- and many of us do --- encode functionality in a package to
be loaded by R and then use an R script to load that package and run. There
are many tools for that.
But it looks like you have a 'compiled code test harness as executables'
mindset which is not applicable here.

By adding it as an argument to PKG_LIBS in the package.

"Executable Rcpp package" ? That makes no sense.
As stated, you can't build "an executable". (We have a siblling project
RInside permitting you to embed the R interpreter easily in an
executable. Maybe that can help.)
How to build _an R package_ with Rcpp is documented in many tutorials. I
would suggest you (maybe re-)the introductory vignette to Rcpp and then look
at the Rcpp Attributes vignette.

Creating a working package is as simple as calling
The key then is how to add to it. I can't explain that in two lines here --
there is a reason we have nine vignettes in the package.
