I have never been successful to install a working OE on MacOS X. So,  
I moved to a Debian Edge system where it installed without any problems.
But unless you want to write your own kernels and some very specific  
things, you don't necessarily need OE on a Mac. Please refer to

where we have already collected some information.

I am currently fighting to get a mkfs.jffs2 that runs on MacOS X. The  
issue is that it needs to #include some very specific Linux kernel  
headers while using some other native MacOS X libraries...
