And looks very similar to what I built a couple of weeks back, though  
I didn't have this exact source archive as my starting point. (See  
http://www.jfkew.plus.com/xindy-macosx.html for the ready-to-use  
package, as well as notes on what I used.)

I don't have time to spend on this, really, but a couple of notes:

(1) I suspect it's a good idea to purge any hint of Fink's /sw tree  
from your paths, as the build is known to work on a Fink-free system  
but seems liable to have problems when other versions of stuff --  
could be headers & libraries, autotools stuff, other utilities....  
who knows! -- get mixed in. Different versions of autotools support  
files, for example, could easily affect things.

(2) There might be a real issue with Intel-based Macs, as this is NOT  
listed as a supported platform in rte/clisp-2.33.2/ffcall/trampoline/ 
PLATFORMS. (Maybe it's OK, and the file just hasn't been updated, but  
I'd be concerned as this is low-level CPU and OS-specific stuff.)
