Error in brm compileCode involving RcppEigen?

Dear discourse.mc-stan:

I can usually get to the bottom of problems with R packages but this one has me stumped. brm loads okay and accepts commands but quits when it is trying to compile. Below I’m attaching the error messages plus information about my R installation and packages. I have checked to see if the problem has anything to do with Dropbox syncing and it does not.

Sincerely,

Niall Bolger
