You will need imlib and ffmpeg to build xjadeo. I found some binary 
packages for you (for Darwin):

Imlib for OSX: http://imlib.darwinports.com/
ffmpeg for OSX: http://ffmpeg.darwinports.com/

There are instructions on these pages on how to install.

 From there, you just need to untar the xjadeo archive and run the build 
(assuming you have gcc and make installed):

tar zxvf xjadeo-0.1.1-3.tar.gz
cd xjadeo-0.1.1
make install (<--- you need to be an admin to install)
