Thank you for your inquiry, I'm glad that you have finally found the right place for your query - few weeks too late, but better than never. But that said, if you actually bothered to read the list you're posting to you'd see the answer to your question already. Admittedly, the answer is only satisfactory to more experienced R users (since the solution requires you to obtain libmpfr for M1 one way or another), but if you bear with me for few more hours I do plan to post the corresponding native library tomorrow.

Because I’m about to analyse bigger text-corpora, I bought the new M1 Mac Mini. Sadly, most of my scripts suddenly stopped working on it, and I was baffled to find out, that it always crashed on the Rmpfr-Package's mpfr-command. Somebody else asked the exact same question on Stack Overflow about 15 days ago, but still hasn’t received a definitive answer (https://stackoverflow.com/questions/66089887/mpfr-always-crash-r-studio?noredirect=1#comment117251458_66089887).
> I even reached out to Prof. Dr. Martin Maechler, the maintainer(“Rmpfr”). He pointed out to me in an earlier Mail, that the package itself is not likely to be the culprit in this. It may have to do with something more low level, perhaps in connection with the M1’s architecture or Rosetta 2 itself. So I thought maybe the SIG could be of help in answering this.
