I think you need to ask on the R-sig-mac list with many more details.

My understanding is that Matrix.so should import something like libintl_dgettext and that the R executable should export it. Hence my suspicion is that your build of R is the problem rather than the installation of Matrix. So the first point to check is if libintl_dgettext is being exported by your executable.
