If you mean the CRAN macOS binary package for RProtoBuf, why did you 
post here?  R-sig-Mac would have been more appropriate, but the CRAN 
policies tell you how to report issues/wishes for binary packages.  Only 
one person can help you with that, and it is most effective to contact 
him directly.

RProtoBuf does not compile on macOS against the current/latest version 
3.6.0 of protobuf (sic), and I have reported to the maintainer.  It did 
compile against 3.5.1, and you could compile from sources yourself.
