You don't have to change the strings that come from the SDK. Just add the 
three new switches directly to the Makefile. Yes, it's a hack but I don't 
think fixing the SDK makes sense now that LO 4.0 is already out and 4.1 will 
not support building on OS X 10.5 anymore.

Something like this would hopefully do (I can't test this so check for typos 
and correct line breaks etc.):


ifeq "$(PLATFORM)" "macosx"
                $(LINK) $(COMP_LINK_FLAGS) $(LINK_LIBS) -o $@ $^ \
dylib_file, at loader_path/libuno_cppuhelper'gcc3.dylib.3:/Applications/LibreOffice.app/Contents/ure-

                -lvoikko -lhfstospell -lwhatever_else_is_needed
                $(INSTALL_NAME_URELIBS)  $@

Not necessarily. But you will likely need to add some compiler switches. 
Googling for this suggests the following:

  -isysroot /Developer/SDKs/MacOSX10.5.sdk -mmacosx-version-min=10.5
