I'm running digikam (v2.2.0) on OS X. I haven't been able to get the pano tools to run correctly, it crashes during the optimization stage of the pano. However to get as far as i did, i needed to patch the code very slightly, which has been submitted as a patch to the devs. 

Alternatively you could still run higin natively on OS X.

You will need to install Hugin for the mac to get this working, once it actually does work. 

'align_image_stack' is an executable distributed w/ Hugin. If you download and install it, it'll be located in /Applications/Hugin/HuginTools/. This directory will need to be in your path do digikam knows where to find these executables.

sort of. Digikam, does rely on binaries from the Hugin project, hence your error re: align_image_stack.
