Thank you for the feedback, this is great!
I kept investigating my particular issue and it turned out that I did

I'm finally joining the party here and so far made good progress
following Taras' instructions.
Disclaimer - I'm new to working with R sources.
But would be very happy to help with testing and reporting to
accelerate support native M1 builds.
I am using the R-4.0.3 sources with the
Creating a native Aarch64 build of R on my M1 machine was surprisingly
straightforward. Here is a step-by-step instruction of what I did in case
someone wants to replicate it:

Thanks for these updates and for the efforts by all involved in this process.

you'll probably want to create them manually. E.g. on GHA it goes like
Thank to all who are working on this. Looks like a lot of work. Also looks
like when and if R can run in native mode on the M1 it will be very fast.

For the CRAN build of R 4.0.3, §2.8 of R-admin recommends checking the
