Working on the same combination as above on a PPC G4 Mac with OS X 10.4 
and XCode 2.0. A  make all  gives me

Assembling (pipe) units/powerpc-darwin/nogui/synregexpr.s
synbeautifier.pas(157,63) Error: Default values can only be specified 
for value, const and constref parameters
synbeautifier.pas(465,1) Fatal: There were 1 errors compiling module, 
Fatal: Compilation aborted

This looks like a spurious =0 in the interface (not implementation) 
declaration, when commented-out compilation completed. I don't know why 
I've not seen this on other platforms.

The program starts, but sticks at the initial configuration form with 
inoperative buttons (some other controls work). If I grab an "about 
right" file from another machine I'm similarly stuck at the "upgrade" 
form. I've not tried building a project using lazbuild since I assume 
that all LCL stuff is similarly affected.

I assume that this is due to the excessively-old version of Xcode that's 
on this machine, and unless somebody really wants me to try updating it 
or use a later Lazarus revision I'm in no hurry to (I'm currently trying 
to clear stuff off my desk, not add to it).
