I haven't the faintest idea what a Mach-o file is.
Since you can get things to compile, you no longer have any problems
related to the email you forwarded below. Why did you want to ask me to
spend my time reading that?

Maybe they have, and haven't shared it. Asking people if they have solved
it might get a more useful response than expressing frustration that they
haven't shared it yet ;-)
On Mac, you need a CUDA-compatible compiler that can compile correct SIMD
intrinsics (ie. can use a functioning assembler), and preferably support
OpenMP. That's an extremely small set, and I don't even know if it is
non-zero. You can make do with something CUDA-compatible without SIMD or
OpenMP support, so long as the assembler works - there's various
discussions on http://redmine.gromacs.org about known problems.
