[Rd] CRAN build/checks: Dependencies on non-CRAN packages?

how is the CRAN build/check system dealing with dependencies on non-CRAN packages? Are there external repositories that are dealt with in special ways, e.g. Bioconductor and Omegahat? Is this documented somewhere?

The most recent note on this that I could locate is "[Rd] CRAN, Bioconductor and ctv package dependency questions", Kurt Hornik, Sept 8, 2005; https://stat.ethz.ch/pipermail/r-devel/2005-September/034547.html.  Does the comments in that thread still reflect how CRAN works?
