Yes. Compile the program as a C++11 program.

My favourite way of saying that is via

   CXX_STD = CXX11

in src/Makevars. Now that all core systems (Win, OS X, Linux) used with R
have proper C++11 compiler support this is no longer an issue.

[ The underlying issue is boring. The powers that be decided a long time ago
that only C++98 was real C++ in the context of R. And that old standard has
no 'long long', hence the issue. Ironically, intermediate standards added
long long but we were not aloud to play with it because someone else knew
what's best for us. Luckily this is a thing of the past. ]
