I presume that you mean RHEL 8, and not just RH 8?

In either case, there is a list specifically for using R on RHEL/Fedora 
based Linux derivative distributions:


You should subscribe to that list and post your query there, as the 
RHEL/Fedora R maintainers are active on that list. They can give you 
guidance on compiling R from source, if you really need to do that, or 
to suggest that you use the existing RPMs for R that they maintain and 
make available.
