open m_pd.h in the /src dir.  scroll down to the bottom of the file 
and you will see this:

#ifdef MACOSX
#define cabs() smerdyakov(void)

comment or delete it.

>-I../portaudio/portmidi-macosx -Wno-error 
>-DINSTALL_PREFIX=\"/usr/local\" -I. -c -o ../obj/g_text.o g_text.c
>/usr/include/architecture/ppc/math.h:440: too many args (1) to macro 
>'cabs' (0 expected)
>cpp-precomp: warning: errors during smart preprocessing, retrying in

>make: *** [g_text.o] Error 1
