[R-SIG-Mac] Using lldb with R 3.6.3 and the current R-devel causes an error exit from the process

See below, lldb works with prior versions of R without a problem. Perhaps
the new hardened runtime is the issue. The behavior seems similar to that
discussed in this thread (https://forums.developer.apple.com/thread/119059).

It would be pretty detrimental not to be able to debug R with lldb, so
hopefully we can find a way to make this work again.
