I updated the Mac wiki page, "Generic PL2303" section.

Let me know if something isnt right:

Find the driver package assembled by Jens , of the Chirp team. I forget where it is but
some Google trickery should reveal its locaction. You just right click on it and choose run.
If your Mac nanny asks do you want to run this from an untrusted source or something like
that say yes and follow the install GUI dialog. No reason to run any install script from a terminal. 
I've done this with the original pkg installer in spanish and then with Jens' pkg. Jens' removes any previous 
drivers. It works great my only fault was not to bookmark the installer file although I do have it on my MacBook.
