The error message indicates that the program ran out of memory. Unless you have only a few megabytes of memory, this should not have happened. I'll have to check with Brian Marshall (he compiled the Mac version) to see if he has any ideas, but the examples worked on his machine. However, example 1 is normally run with the phreeqc.dat database, so llnl.dat may not have been tested.
A couple things you could do (1) run example 1 with the phreeqc.dat database, and (2) attach the ex1.out files for both the phreeqc.dat and llnl.dat runs to an email.
Thanks for bringing this to our attention, hopefully we can find the problem.

To whom it may concern,
I have recently downloaded Phreeqc 2.5 for the macintosh and can't get the llnl.dat database to work with it. I get the following error message as output
SIOUX state: application has terminated ________________________________________
Input file: ex1
Output file: ex1.out
Database file: llnl.dat
ERROR: NULL pointer returned from malloc or realloc. ERROR: Program terminating. Stopping.
Is there a problem with the database or am I missing something obvious?
