There seems to be a problem in the launch script for Freeciv in the
Mac OS X installation. Apparently an apostrophe (') in the path to the
application is not escaped in the startup script and causes syntax
error, and no error is shown (but on the Console)

This information is taken from this post:

Here is the specific python error, error posted by a freeciv forums user:
  File "/Users/xapple/Library/Application
Support/Freeciv/2.0.9/run-freeciv.py", line 6
    FREECIVDIR = '/Volumes/xApple's HD/My
SyntaxError: invalid syntax

It was confirmed that renaming his Disk to remove the ' resolved the issue.
