Under Debian you should install the r-base-dev package (also available
on CRAN) if you wish to compile and install R packages with Fortran or
C source code.
The r-base-dev package will require several other packages
$ dpkg-deb --info r-base-dev_1.6.2-1_all.deb
new debian package, version 2.0.

Description: GNU R installation of auxiliary GNU R packages
R is `GNU S' - A language and environment for statistical computing
and graphics. R is similar to the award-winning S system, which was
developed at Bell Laboratories by John Chambers et al. It provides a
wide variety of statistical and graphical techniques (linear and
nonlinear modelling, statistical tests, time series analysis,
classification, clustering, ...).
R is designed as a true computer language with control-flow
constructions for iteration and alternation, and it allows users to
add additional functionality by defining new functions. For
computationally intensive tasks, C, C++ and Fortran code can be
linked and called at run time.
This packages ensures that other Debian packages needed for installation of
some auxiliary R packages are installed.
