We have BuildRequires: gcc-c++

in R-base.spec.

That means gcc-c++ will be installed when *building* R-base. It says
nothing about the dependencies of the packages it produces.

Some traces:

For example AlgDesign fails, that has Requires: R-base
and BuildRequires: R-base-devel.

R-base-devel requires R-core-devel

R-core-devel requires R-base. I would expect gcc-g++ coming onto the
field there?

No, unless R-base *requires* gcc-c++.

BuildRequires is about build-time dependencies. Requires is about
install-time dependencies. Build-time dependencies are not transitive.
