Hi Samir,

I do publish ports of the latest R releases for arm64 on CRAN. Not sure what 
you mean by R dev, but if you are looking for R 3.5.2 on Debian, you can 
install that using the instructions on CRAN


Disclaimer: I have no experience with cross compilation, buildroot or Yocto. I 
just build R on the raspi 3 running Debian stable.

Kind regards,
