The only candidate that I can think of is the PDA scene, which R has been just a little too hard to build for till now (Linux based Zaurus excepted). For those platforms you could be stuck with only a C/C++ compiler, but probably also without all the rest of the toolchain, so building will be a major headache anyway.
