No sure if this is the best place to ask this question or if its a conda related issue. However, after installing a conda environment and then installing the bioconda-deseq2 package, I am profiling some code on a mac (runs ok on linux) and I am getting issues with shared objects:

Did you use biocLite() or BiocManager::install() to install packages in your conda installation? I think that you must opt fully for conda (and live with outdated versions and perhaps some packages that are not available) or fully for installation 'by hand' for the reasons described at

I used conda exclusively on a clean environment. I will try conda create --name deseq2 bioconductor-deseq2 gcc as suggested by the linked issue.

I probably didn't read the error message carefully enough. It looks like your conda environment doesn't have libintl.9.dylib. It isn't obvious from google how to install this in conda, other than through indirectly through some other package. Probably more help available in conda forums. Sorry for misleading.
