Here's a couple of quotes from the PCGen mailing list:
There is no planned Mac release. Apple has changed some important things they include or don't include, which has made it impossible for our new Mac volunteers to figure out how to create an actual Mac app build. However, the zip folder version can work on a Mac and is listed as the Mac download on sourceforge.

I've never seen any Java app that wasn't garbage. Vassal, XMage, on and on they've ALL been about as reliable and user-friendly as a rabid porcupine. Trying to get PC Gen to work was like trying to build something out of melting LEGO.
While perhaps that was cathartic for you, it is of absolutely no help in making PCGen better.
What is it that you were trying to do? How did PCGen do it, and how did you want PCGen to do it? How can we make PCGen easier for you to use?
It would also help if you would include which version of PCGen you used last, so I know what to compare your experience with.
I'll admit, I'm confused. PCGen should not be asking for a license. You may see a notice that we are using the Open Gaming License, but you shouldn't need to accept or have any license yourself to use PCGen.
If you could walk me through what you are seeing when you try to use the program, I'll do what I can to help.
If all else fails, the "Tools | Preferences" menu choice brings up a bunch of settings you can set. Clicking on the "Locations" entry in the left-hand column brings up the locations of saved characters, data files, and a bunch of other things. They also can be changed to other locations, as desired. [I do that for several of the directories.]
