Good point. A quick googling gave me this link:
which is a short story about R on Debian. It gives two links
to scripts for creating .rpm and .deb files from R packages. I've only
had a quick look at this, but it seems that for debian they do ($bdps =
build dependencies):

        foreach $dep (@{$packages->{$package}{'debianbuilddependencies'}
}) {
          $bdps = $bdps . ", " . $dep;
          system("ssh -l root -A localhost \"PATH=/sbin:/usr/sbin:\$PATH
apt-get install $dep\"");

which I read as (I'm not a perl hacker) they have a field called

I can't really figure out what the .rpm creation script does.
