I just did some googling that resulted in me doing

  530  sudo port install dbus
  534  sudo launchctl load -w /Library/LaunchDaemons/org.freedesktop.dbus-system.plist
  535  launchctl load -w /Library/LaunchAgents/org.freedesktop.dbus-session.plist
  539  sudo chown -R helling ~/Library/Preferences/KDE
  540  ./subsurface 

(missing some failed steps in between) and now I have a working file selector on Mac, although nothing that looks like the native one.

Hendrik, can you confirm this?
