[Bioc-devel] Dependency not available for R4.1 on macOS

The build system tries to behave like a typical *user* system, so it installs macOS binaries. But for whatever reason, macOS binaries for the 'devel' version of R seem only to be produced at the last minute leading up to a release. So if the package you depend on requires compilation, then it is unlikely to be installed on the build system, and there is nothing to be done but wait... [and perhaps ask about svglite availability on the R-sig-mac mailing list].

    Hi all,

    I just noticed that a dependency (svglite) for my package (cytomapper) is not available for R v4.1 on macOS (https://bioconductor.org/checkResults/devel/bioc-LATEST/cytomapper/machv2-install.html <https://bioconductor.org/checkResults/devel/bioc-LATEST/cytomapper/machv2-install.html>).
    However, I cannot reproduce this issue on my Mac (10.15.7 Catalina) running R v4.1.
    Does anyone know how to resolve this or can anyone point me in the right direction?
    Thanks in advance!
