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
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.
