Thanks for the Mac port. But, sorry to report it has a couple of problems: 1. It crashes as soon as I click on the play checkbox of any level that I select.

Please try to start pingus in a terminal, maybe it reports some errors there. To do so, cd to the folder containing Pingus.app (e.g. "cd / Applications/Games/"), then execute "Pingus.app/Contents/MacOS/pingus"
Here I get the following output:
$ Pingus.app/Contents/MacOS/pingus
Welcome to Pingus 0.7.6!
userdir:                 /Users/jonas/.pingus/
datadir:                 Pingus.app/Contents//data
language:                German (de)
sound support:           enabled
music support:           enabled
fullscreen:              disabled

2011-12-27 20:30:10.229 pingus[328:613] Warning once: This application, or a library it uses, is using NSQuickDrawView, which has been deprecated. Apps should cease use of QuickDraw and move to Quartz.

2. It defaults to German, which is ok, but the --language option does not work to change it.

Sorry, that's my fault. I just saw that the language was selected at compile time instead of run time. To fix it, open "Pingus.app/Contents/ MacOS/pingus" using a text editor and change the second line to "lang=<what you need>".
Currently the line reads "lang=de" but it should be:
lang=`defaults read .GlobalPreferences AppleLanguages | tr -d [:space:] | cut -c2-3`
Apparently I missed to escape the back ticks, so this was executed while I build pingus already. Another problem with this language detection is, that it only works with two-letter codes, so something like "pt_BR" won't be detect correctly.

Which version of OSX should it work with? I'm running 64bit 10.7.2

I build it on 32 bit intel, using 10.5 "Leopard". Here I can play levels but some graphics are missing.
