It is actually Makevars. If it is there it will be in the .R directory of your home folder.
Unless it has been set up for something else, like Rcpp, then it can probably be deleted.

I remember seeing in the summaries I get some issues with different combinations of versions of R, Stan and compilers.

I installed R stan following instructions in https://github.com/stan-dev/rstan/wiki/RStan-Getting-Started#how-to-use-rstan <https://github.com/stan-dev/rstan/wiki/RStan-Getting-Started#how-to-use-rstan> to the letter, but when I try to compile any model R leaves me hanging indefinitely (I’ve waited up to 30 minutes with ridiculously short models).
