That is difficult to say given the limited information you provided [ hint:
next time please list compiler, libc, and libstdc++ versions ] but one common
pattern is more recent-vs-older g++ versions as newer ones became more picky
about missing header includes.

This is now off-topic for r-devel so let's move it off-list.
