To check which packages are dependent on another use the dependents command:

  $ dependents r-base
  s ess
  s r-base-core
  d r-base-html
  d r-base-latex
  d r-cran-xml
  s r-doc-html
  s r-doc-info
  d med-physics
Here, the package ess suggests r-base while med-physics depends on r-base. Other relationships include r for recommends, p for replaces, and c for conflict.
