They are not in the CentOS or epel distros. I have built both dplyr and
ggplot2 for CentOS 6 and 7, using the spec file crated by R2spec (from
epell) and rpmbuild. They both require building several other R packages,
and a bit of tweaking to the %files portion of the spec file, but are
doable. I've never tried doBy or caret.
Feel free to contact me directly for more information,
