Thank you for the feedback, this is great! I kept investigating my particular issue and it turned out that I did not pay sufficient attention. I actually forgot to comment out the relevant include and lib paths that I set in the config.site file … my bad.
As I proceeded, I encountered a few more issues. It turned out ./configure needed a newer version of curl. Installing it with brew did the job + linking the lib include and pkconfig to /opt/homebrew respectively. Currently my build efforts are stuck as libR.dylib references _libiconv but cannot find that symbol inside libiconv, which seems to be an old issue according to a quick google search, e.g (https://mw.gl/posts/libiconv_mac/). Installing and linking libiconv via brew did not work so far, I do not manage to tell the compiler to look up the right libiconv. On the other hand, the binary provided via brew seems to work fine. Installing R packages from the sources worked flawlessly and the packages seem usable. So far I've checked out tidymodels, readr, ggplot2, ranger, grf, glmnet (plust the dependencies). This looks very encouraging!
