For the internal build linking, it looks like it's supposed to link to  
the new liblwgeom.a.  But the -L/usr/local/pgsql/lib option is after - 
L../liblwgeom AND the OSX linker prefers dynamic libs, so it's finding  
the old installed liblwgeom.so, which is what the new liblwpostgis.so  
is replacing.

Delete /usr/local/pgsql/lib/liblwgeom.* and try again.
