[R] Warning when running R - can't install packages either

I’m maintainer of the R package in Alpine Linux.
I read on multiple places that some packages needs R_HOME variable set to the location where is R installed, so I’ve added it to the system-wide profile. Is this correct, or a misinformation?
What system dependencies does R need to compile modules from CRAN? On Alpine the following dependencies are needed to build R: bzip2-dev curl-dev gfortran lapack-dev pcre-dev perl readline-dev xz-dev zlib-dev. Are all of these dependencies needed for compiling modules?

> It depends on why you set the value in your environment in the first place; maybe you were trying to use a particular installation of R, but setting R_HOME is not the way to do that (I use an alias, e.g., R-3.3='~/bin/R-3-3-branch/bin/R --no-save --no-restore --silent')
