I don't use it myself but version 20171017.817
is in the MELPA. Seems enough up to date to me!
You know how to get stuff from MELPA, right?
(Not an insult :))

Also, I don't see why it should be any
different on a Mac so what it says [1] in the
EmacsWiki should hold!

But, what mail/news client do you use? Gnus?
And what functionality do you hope to get with
bbdb? There might be a much, much simpler way,
namely using the ~/.mailrc file.

As in:

    alias john    "John DiFool <address@hidden>"
    alias kate    "Katherine Moss <address@hidden>"
    alias friends john kate

Ask more if it didn't help!
