Maybe you could start by writing a polite email to Paul Murrell (the 
maintainer of `gridGraphics` according to 
https://cran.r-project.org/package=gridGraphics) and ask if he is aware 
that his package fails on OSX on CRAN.

If you are lucky he might be able to quickly fix the issue and send a 
new version to CRAN.
