yes, the gcc complains about the code produced by mprep, but this is a warning only and no error . On my MacBook I get the same warning, when I use gcc, still the MathLink program runs fine.
Did you check to start the the "image" program from the command-line and give it a link-name like "blub" and try to install this link by
lnk = Install[LinkConnect["blub"]]
inside Mathematica? If this runs, then your DYLD_LIBRARY_PATH is maybe not usable inside Mathematica. In this case you have to create/adjust your ~/.MacOSX/environment.plist file so that GUI-programs like Mathematica have a correct DYLD_LIBRARY_PATH. See here  how to do that.
 You may know the famous joke: A guy is standing on the corner of the street smoking one cigarette after another. A lady walking by notices him and says "Hey, don't you know that those things can kill you? I mean, didn't you see the giant warning on the box?!" "That's OK" says the guy, puffing casually "I'm a computer programmer" "So? What's that got to do with anything?" "We don't care about warnings. We only care about errors."
