I am new to this list and in the process of building some RPMs for R packages. I have been rolling my own packages for a few years now and post them for public use. I am a heavy user of R2spec with spec file tweaks of course. Thanks for the author for making life easier.
Every so often, I encounter the circular dependency issue with "suggest". For example, I am building R-reshape that depends on a bunch of packages including R-iterator and R-foreach. Unfortunately, R-iterator and R-foreach both suggest each other.
I used to be able to force ignoring suggests but this causes problems with check and test and skipping check and test isn't exactly what I want to do either.
I would like to know what the "proper" way of building RPMs for the both of these R packages.

Such as R itself, fixed in the version present in updates-testing, there
are R packages that depend explicitly on texlive-latex. Although that is
not a problem now I would be better to replace that with a requirement
on tex(latex) that also works now and it will work when tex is update to
the latest texlive.
FWIW I am having this problem because I have texlive-2012 installed from
Jindrich Novy's repo.
The affected packages are:
