I've written to AMD support and got this answer which reject the responsibility to Apple :

"If your PC is an Apple system, we recommend you contact to Apple for the suppport for OpenGL for Mac. If you purchased one of our graphics cards designed for Mac sytem, for example the Radeon HD 3870 Mac, then the first driver version is developed by us 

and the following ones by Apple. 

This is the reason why we recommend you to contact Apple for more informations regarding your application."
