I doubt that this is R-related. R's dependencies have not changed. It
displays via x11 using the resources offered by x11.

So it may have to do with your x11 server setup, maybe via the windowing
environment etc pp.  You may need to compare the list of font packages
between Debian 7 and 8.  You could also try to ask on debian-user.
