I'm a total newbie too, but I did manage to get wmii running on Mac OS
X 10.3.9. 9base didn't compile for me either. I already had a working
installation of plan9port <>, however, so I
thought I'd try that. I made a symlink to it so that wmii could find it
(it looks in /usr/local/9 iirc) and it seems to work fine. (As a bonus
you can try the great Plan 9 tools like acme.) wmii then compiled fine
for me.

(I then had some issue with X11 not finding wmii even though it was in
my path. I fixed this by making symlinks in /usr/X11R6/bin to all the
/usr/local/bin/wmii* executables.)
