If you show us the error messages and maybe the config.log file, I'm
sure someone could help you out. (You're using GNU make, right?)

Actually, R7B-1 should compile out-of-the-box on FreeBSD (I know
first-hand that it does on OpenBSD and NetBSD).

It could well be that teaching erts/autoconf/config.{guess,sub} about
MacOS X/Darwin is enough to make things work. Try replacing them with
something a bit more recent:
