In 'freecad-0.14.3692/cMake/FindCoin3D.cmake' I find:

    SET(COIN3D_LIBRARY "-framework Coin3d" CACHE STRING "Coin3D library for OSX")

However all the coin3D header files use the 'Inventor' prefix, for example in So.h:

#include <Inventor/SoDB.h>
#include <Inventor/SoInput.h>
#include <Inventor/SoOffscreenRenderer.h>
#include <Inventor/SoOutput.h>
#include <Inventor/SoPath.h>
#include <Inventor/SoPickedPoint.h>
#include <Inventor/SoPrimitiveVertex.h>

#include <Inventor/misc/SoState.h>

#include <Inventor/SoLists.h>
#include <Inventor/actions/SoActions.h>
#include <Inventor/details/SoDetails.h>
#include <Inventor/elements/SoElements.h>
#include <Inventor/engines/SoEngines.h>
#include <Inventor/errors/SoErrors.h>
#include <Inventor/events/SoEvents.h>
#include <Inventor/fields/SoFields.h>
#include <Inventor/nodes/SoNodes.h>
#include <Inventor/sensors/SoSensorManager.h>
#include <Inventor/sensors/SoSensors.h>

So it seems to me that the framework wasn't set up properly -- there isn't an 'Inventor' directory. I'm guessing the headers were written for a non-framework installation?
