Compile with
$ make -f Makefile.osx OPT=-g
$ cd ..
$ gdb
(This is approximate--actual path should be obvious.)

You don't want the executable to be named Hellband, you want the package to be named

Set the NAME macro in Makefile.osx to
NAME = Hellband
rather than
NAME = Angband
Note that the variable definitions in Makefile.osx are all important -- they are used to replace the appropriate values in the plist file.

If you don't like command-line arguments to make, or editing Makefile.osx, you can create override values in

I don't recommend this for debug flags and the like, because it's easy to forget when you want to make a distribution.
