i gave this a go last spring. had it working but haven't had the time
to revisit. from my notes, heres is what i used then for x86_64. maybe
it will help?

make clean

LDFLAGS="-framework QTKit -L/Applications/VLC.app/Contents/MacOS/lib/"
./configure --enable-fat-binary=x86_64
--with-default-font=vera.ttf --with-defaultwindow=gemcocoawindow
--with-video=plugins --with-film=plugins --without-ImageMagick
--without-libquicktime --prefix=$HOME/Library/Pd/
--includedir=$HOME/Library/Pd/include --libdir=$HOME/Library/Pd/


install_name_tool -change @loader_path/lib/libvlc.5.dylib

make install
