Thanks for the quick reply.
I actually encountered this point of yours and that is why I found this mailing list.
On your solution, I did try putting 'export _R_CHECK_FORCE_SUGGESTS_ = false; R CMD
check' in the spec file. But now, it fails again again doing a test that requires
foreach while building iterator.

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.
From the perspective of a scientist or engineer, the 'proper' solution
would be to have a dependency _TREE_ instead of a dependency

I've frankly been out of the loop on where Pierre-Yves is going on this
issue for some time. I'm sure he's got some comments.
