You don't say what GNUbg version you use, but I think the last one 
directly installable on a Mac is gnubg-1_04_000-mac-1010-x86_64.dmg. A 
relativeley old GNUbg built on a relatively old macOS...

Another possibility would be to install it throuhgh MacPorts. I think is 
currently broken, but probably only because it looks for the source 
archive on the now unavailable files.gnubg.org.

For someone already using MacPorts, I think it should be easy to fix 
that locally (I may be able to help), and ideally push the fix to the 
MacPorts repository, either by taking the maintenance of the port or at 
least by opening a ticket there.

For a package that could be installed independantly, like the dmg file 
above, on the other hand, one would need to elicit interest from a Mac 
hobbyist or developper, something that apparently hasn't happened for a 
few years.
