A few months ago I was contacted by someone who was trying to do exactly 

There were a few issues in the source code and in the lack of 
documentation for the process but I think the former have beed fixed 

The first obstacle was that some of Apple development tools, at least 
bison, are too old (probably stuck at an earlier GPL licence). You would 
need either those from Homebrew or Macports ; you will need some 
libraries from them anyway.

If either of these packages managers is available and the prerequisites 
detailed in the INSTALL file from the sources distribution installed

./configure <with possibly some adequate options>

should complete.

I don't have the exact log of what he finally did (he used homebrew), 
but he could build a working version with the GUI enabled. The only 
obvious issue was that the Tutor mode didn't work but he wasn't 
interested in investigating that at the time.
