I don't use DCC on MacOS/X, but I do use MacOS/X for other things, so 
I gave it a try:

  $ uname -a
  Darwin JD1.local 7.8.0 Darwin Kernel Version 7.8.0: Wed Dec 22
  14:26:17 PST 2004; root:xnu/xnu-517.11.1.obj~1/RELEASE_PPC  Power
  Macintosh powerpc
  $ sw_vers
  ProductName:    Mac OS X
  ProductVersion: 10.3.8
  BuildVersion:   7U16
  $ ./configure
  creating cache ./config.cache
  Rhyolite Software DCC 1.2.74
  checking for cc... cc
  checking for gcc... (cached) cc
  checking whether the C compiler (cc  ) works... yes
  checking whether the C compiler (cc  ) is a cross-compiler... no
  checking whether we are using GNU C... yes
  checking whether cc accepts -g... yes
  checking how to run the C preprocessor... cc -E
  checking for pthread_mutex_lock... yes

So that seems to be OK. It does issue this at the end of ./configure:

  look for sendmail milter library in
        *** cannot build dccm without sendmail headers in
  ./../sendmail and libraries in
  ./../sendmail/obj.Darwin.7.8.0.PowerMacintosh ***

So it won't build dccm, but other than that, the build seemed to go 
fine. If there's anything else you'd like to see, just ask.
