You need the Apple Developer Tools installed. This is a CD which  
ships with your Mac or with a bought Mac OSX system.
On this CD are all tools needed to compile, link, ...

Normally you download sword from here:

untar with:
tar -xzf sword-1.5.9.tar.gz

cd to this directory:
cd sword-1.5.9

configure the environment and giving a prefix path:
./configure --prefix=/opt/sowrd-1.5.9	(for example)

make and make install to the given prefix directory:
make && make install

This works on my Mac OSX 10.4.8 PPC system.

God bless,
