I created similar one since above links are unavailable. The package is here but I have several difficulties:
1. Requires ImageMagick and GNU_Aspell 2. sudo ln -s /Library/Fonts\ Disabled /usr/share/fonts to use TimesNewRoman
3. Drag and drop does not work. You have to use other app to open file.

Re: Mac OS X Mountain Lion x86_64 packaging of 0.48.4
Hey, just wanted to point out that there are nearly nine thousand views on this thread, which is several orders of magnitude greater than almost any other thread here. Obviously there are a lot of people that are really interested in an up-to-date Mac version of Inkscape.
It's been almost a year since Valerio's last update on this. Is there anything we can do to help this along? Can anyone step in and pick up where this left off? Please??
