Anyway, I gave up compiling it myself and installed tor through MacPorts.
To keep all my stuff I just copied then the tor binary to the previous tor (git-bb8c4e69ca5c8bca), which I compiled myself before.

mv /usr/local/bin/tor /usr/local/bin/tor.old
cp /opt/local/bin/tor /usr/local/bin/
chown f.staff /usr/local/bin/tor

now the “new” tor is running and works with all my old settings.

Thank you for the help!
