srand() isn't relevant to the R random number generator, and you
haven't included the header file that defines it (this should lead to
a warning about implicit declaration).
More importantly, you haven't included the R equivalents GetRNGstate()
and PutRNGstate(). You want something like
SEXP generateGamma ()
