Dear Stephane and Eberhard,
It should not be necessary to install Xcode (which includes otools) to
install and use the Rcmdr package on macOS because it shouldn't be
necessary to install the CRAN packages required from source. I'm
currently running the Rcmdr on two macOS 11.1 systems, with all CRAN
packages up-to-date, and don't have any problems.
Stephane, have you and your students checked the Rcmdr installation
and followed the instructions there? If you have, and still experience
this problem, it would help to have some more information about what
they did to install the Rcmdr and what happened.
In the meantime, I'll try a fresh install of the Rcmdr and dependencies
to see whether I encounter any difficulties.

When they load Rcmd, some supplementary tools (in order to use the command "otool") are missing according a message and trying to download them leads to a message indicated that it is not at the present moment available (since Thursday last week...)
