Thanks for responding.  I may be doing something dumb here w.r.t. to the install, or it could be simply due to me having the ActiveState python being picked up first in my path. I have done  any installs of software from .zip files in the Mac world before, so perhaps I am doing something incorrectly here. 

Here is the entire debug.log file:

--- end of debug.log

The 800x600 chirp window does start, but there is nothing displayed in it. The KK7DS python (R6) has been installed on the system. Macports may be conflicting here w.r.t. python. The Prolific 3.00 driver has been installed and is being seen in the System Information output. Radio is a
Baofeng UV-5RC Plus, I am using the Baofeng branded cable, and it appears to be well seated in the radio (i.e. if I tune the radio to NOAA 
weather radio channel, I see the color change on the display, but do
not hear anything) . 

I have tried dragging this into the Applications folder, and running it outside of the applications directory. Looking at the code in chirpw at line 146, it looks like the next thing it is doing is attempting to start GTK. 

From /Users/dritchie/Downloads/chirp-daily-20140222.app/Contents/Resources/chirp/chirpw:

146 a.show()
148 if profile:
149     import cProfile, pstats
150     cProfile.run("gtk.main()", "chirpw.stats")
151     p = pstats.Stats("chirpw.stats")
152     p.sort_stats("cumulative").print_stats(10)
153 else:
154     gtk.main()

BTW, when I attempt to execute python -v, it is resolving to /usr/local/bin/python instead of anything in /opt/kk7ds...

I have attached the screen shot of how the chirp window looks also. 

nst-dritchie-mac:.chirp dritchie$ env 
nst-dritchie-mac:.chirp dritchie$ 

I would be interested to see someone else's environment that has this working...

That warning just means there's no configuration file for Pango, but
no worries, the defaults work just fine. Your problem is elsewhere.

If you show us the rest of the debug.log, there may be a clue as to
what the problem really is. Also, could you describe the behavior
you're seeing and the sequence of events that led up to it? The two
words you use, "died" and "fails", leave me wondering what part of the
process failed.
