Thank you both very much for your help. Summarizing your comments:
1. There were no problems when installing the package from CRAN on a macOS
Catalina with clang11 and R 4.0.0.
2. Since I don't use any of the objects directly, it is probably a gdal
thing due to an improper(?) installation.

OK, but the problem happens on CRAN during the CRAN checks for the OS X and
macOS system flavors... Does this mean that there might be something wrong
with CRAN gdal installation for OS X and macOS? (I don't think so, plus how
can I check that without bothering CRAN maintainers?)

Although Rodrigo suggestion will work, if I abort the installation I will
fail the CRAN check, which is the reason I'm asking this question...

Thanks once again,
