What are the errors? Everything I've read suggests that OS X is a known target 
in the compile configuration. Look out for spaces in directory paths and

Darwin ports is probably the best way to do things like this; since it installs 
everything in it's own /opt/ directory, so OS X system upgrades don't stomp on 
it. Apple's updates have a nasty tendency to be a process like 'delete the 
existing /etc directory replace it with the one from the update'.

I'm not running dhcp on OS X but I am using it to run a mysql dbms and it works 
like a charm.
