Morgan O. Hanzlik, formerly of SwRI, has written a tremendously
helpful guide for compiling on the Mac. You can find it on the
CVS repository, at
(click on "udf-dlm/", then on "README.mac", then on the "download"
link for the latest version -- 1.3 at this minute).
This should help with Mac issues.
However, from your earlier mail to me, I believe the big problem
is that you're using IDL 5.1. The INSTALL file states that 5.2
is the bare minimum under which udf-dlm will work, because of
the use of unsigned ints (introduced in 5.2). Looks like the
STRUCTURE tag in the .dlm file may be a 5.2-ism as well.
Finally, note also that Chris Gurgiolo has has his own IDL
interface package now. My code is stable, reliable, and well
tested. If you prefer something more exciting, you may want
to look into Chris's package.

We're working on the DLM code for Macs and PCs too, so I can't promise any
answers. I have passed your question on to the experts, to the extent there
