Your issues show that you got a polluted environment, you have
macports/fink/whatever installed that interferes with the build.

Building against non-Apple-provided libraries and stuff is not
supported. Patches to shield the build-environment against
accidentally building against those are welcome.

To build LO on Mac: Get rid of the macports/fink/... stuff. Create an
environment where only XCode is used. (with the exception of the mac
dependencies when you don't use --disable-mozilla)
