To my understanding that is not the case. It would only do so if and when
install.packages() is asked to also install packages in Suggests:. And point
of Suggests: is that that is not automagic.

I actually Suggests, together with Additional_Repositories: (for which Noah
may have to set the repo up, I have not checked if gurobi has one) may be the
correct call.
