Ok then, here is a step-by-step description (but I hope you've got MacPorts; here is a manual how to install it: http://www.macports.org/install.php). Download and install UFO:AI 2.4. For what comes next, you need MacPorts installed:
Open Terminal and type:
sudo port selfupdate
then
sudo port upgrade outdated (this should not be necessary, but you never know)
then
sudo port install libsdl

This might take some time.
Basically that's what I did. Good luck!

But what about my issue?

here are some links for the reason of mac and sdl 1.2.14 fullscreen bug:

http://ufoai.ninex.info/forum/index.php/topic,6445.msg50689.html#msg50689

you have to update your libsdl from macports to at least 1.2.15 to be able to run the game in fullscreen on macosx >= 10.7

Having followed all the steps, downloaded everything, updated, honoured the ancestral spirits with libations and rituals, installed the software in accordance with the passage of the correct planets, and placed my computer in harmony with both feng shui -and- cosmic alignment...

...I have nothing to show for it.

Why are the downloads so big? A gig seems a little much.

In MacOS 10.7.2 I was able to get 2.3.1 to work following the instructions in this thread but slightly differently.

I did download macports and use it's update to SDL as described. I then downloaded and manually installed SDL 1.2.15

I had to install xcode from the apple applications store. Then I used locations different from those given on the first page of this thread in the terminal to make it work:

install_name_tool -change /opt/local/Library/Frameworks/SDL_mixer.framework/Versions/A/SDL_mixer @executable_path/../Frameworks/SDL_mixer /Applications/UFOAI.app/Contents/MacOS/ufo
install_name_tool -change /opt/local/Library/Frameworks/SDL_image.framework/Versions/A/SDL_image @executable_path/../Frameworks/SDL_image /Applications/UFOAI.app/Contents/MacOS/ufo
cp -r /Library/Frameworks/SDL.framework /Applications/UFOAI.app/Contents/Frameworks/

hope this helps.

PS it's worth mentioning that if you are on 10.7.2 and your install locations are the same as mine and you followed the instructions of this thread literally before getting to my alternate location terminal commands, you will have to change the string for the SDL_image line to replace the previous change. looks like so:

install_name_tool -change @executable_path/../Frameworks/SDL_image.framework/Versions/A/SDL_image @executable_path/../Frameworks/SDL_image /Applications/UFOAI.app/Contents/MacOS/ufo
