gphoto is a library for interfacing with cameras [0]

gphoto does probably work on OS X [2]

gphoto for Pd's makefile is only for Linux [3]

so at least some build system hacking is required, possibly more in
depth code changes (if gphoto external for Pd has bitrotted out of sync
with current versions of gphoto library)
