Have you installed Xcode and developer tools? It looks like that particular library may be part of gettext which you will need to install.

I installed Xcode but I don't think I installed the developer tools. Could you link it please?

Search using google on how to install command line developer tools. You also need to install a particular library besides these tools.

They just say to install Xcode (and I did) I cannot find any particular reference with what you say!

SOLVED!!!! I followed this guide here: https://github.com/adamhsparks/setup_macOS_for_R

Suggestion, if during the makevar manipulation you are not able to modify it, use nano in sudo:

sudo nano ~/.R/Makevars
