Thank you. It seems for me that pcscd itself is modern and up-to-date
on OS X. But, I'm afraid libccid is not so up to date on OS X. And
I'm afraid if pinpad input is supported on OS X (not only for your
specific card reader, but in general).

I think that it is better to ask Apple if pinpad input is supported
(and update of libccid, if not).
Well, I don't think this is the matter of gnupg-users, but I'm writing
as an possible answer. Sorry in advance, if it's irrelevant.
My script would help.
I wrote a Python script for testing pinpad input with OpenPGPcard
using PC/SC service. By using this script, I have enhanced support of
some card readers into GnuPG.
The script uses PySCard: http://pyscard.sourceforge.net/
I have no knowledge/experience if PySCard works on OS X, but
it works on GNU/Linux.
Please note that the purpose of my script is for testing card readers,
basically, and it's not for testing PC/SC service or operating system.
