I'm don't run OS-X, so read with care.

Generally you can run Pd from any directory you want, you don't need
to "install" it. So if you want to have a one-click abstraction
launcher, I would just compile Pd, copy all externals and abstractions
to the "extra" directory in the source tree, remove "src" and create a
script (.sh or .bat) to launch Pd with appropriate command line
options like: 

./bin/pd -path ./extra -lib SomeLib myabstraction.pd

or similar. Probably OS-X will offer some conventience tricks to make
that even more user friendly, but this way will in principle work
everywhere, and it's very easy to set up.
