I always use the following command:
cd modules/codec/ffmpeg ; make ; cd ../../../ ; rm -r VLC.app ; make 

This usually works pretty well for small changes in modules. and it 
only requires one line.

svn diff and send the patch to vlc-devel list.

Currently such a thing is not possible, since it would require a 
dependancy on the OSX interface, which is not a good thing.
You can easily add interfaces in 0.7.2 via the Application menu -> Add 
Interface menu.
