After applying the patch to deal with boost on the mac got be past the pluginlib portion of the usb_cam compile. However now I'm getting these following errors when making usb_cam on a mac. Any advice?

This Just Won't Work. Note that V4L2 lines? That's "video for linux", and doesn't exist on the Mac, not even a little bit.

One could imagine tying into QuickTime and all of Apple's stuff (some of which is pretty nice), but that's not going to happen in usb_cam.

Try the new UVC, it is still experimental but it works for me on Lion.
