The file README.txt from sage-6.1-x86_64-Darwin-OSX_10.9_x86_64-app.dmg, for Mavericks (OS X 10.9.1) says that:

3) Use finder to visit the sage folder you just copied it and double click on the "sage" icon.

4) Select to run it with "Terminal": Choose Applications, then select "All Applications" in the "Enable:" drop down. Change the "Applications" drop down to "Utilities". On the left, scroll and select "Terminal". Click "Open", then in the next dialog select "Update".

5) Sage should pop up in a window.

Please, can someone explain the step 4? For example, I am unable to find "Enable:" drop down.

Hmm, it's possible that behavior has changed with Mavericks. When you try to run it with the Terminal, do you get any options at all? We can update the instructions if need be.

That said, if you just double-click the .app bundle, you should not have to worry about this part, that is the point of having an app.

Although it wouldn't solve this, see also http://trac.sagemath.org/ticket/15783 which was merged into Sage 6.1.1.
