Mac builds are tricky... None of the freecad developers has a mac, so we
depends on (rare) people willing to try to build and report and follow
problems. So it's rarely updated and working out of the box.There is little
we can do, unless more mac people are helping.
I think there were reports of pivy working on mac already, so there should
be a way to make it work. You are aware, though, that it is not necessary
neither for freecad to run neither for making parametric objects, right? It
is only needed for Draft and Arch modules, and for making parametric
objects with advanced visual behaviour...
About your error here, it's hard to know what's wrong from this info...
Have you had a look on the mac-related topics on the freecad forum?
